Hopefully you will enjoy it much more than your ancestors, but not as much as your descendants!

I have both reels and the Hardy gets the nod 9 times out of 10, for some reason............

Good choice!

+ 1 on LRH. I have several more modern reels that I enjoy fishing with, but since having picked up an LRH, I find myself wanting to fish it more and more. Great reel.

Honestly, you can't go wrong with either of these choices or companies for that matter, they are both top notch.

Thank you all for your interest and replies. I won a Steve Jenkins 4wt 7'6" 2 piece fiberglass fly rod recently. Honey colored Lamiglas blank! I've got a couple ideas for fly line, including a Cortland 444 Sylk DT 5wt. I'll leave this topic for another post. Thanks again!
