The pflueger web site has incorrect information, and has contained it for some time......... Have you ever seen that thing, its definatley not a fly reel!

There is another brass fly reel, that balances 8 wt glass rods just fine, it's also a tank, Numbered a 1555

Got another pic to show the caparison.

The web site is wrong, the reel your asking about is not a fly reel. Shame on them.

If you look up historic Pfluegers, I know they have it listed as a fly reel........ Its definatley not. Unless your flyfishing a magical broomstick, and pursuing whales.

he's asking about trolling lines not fly. actually what rod, go for a soft rod when trolling flies on wire or lead. New England style of fishing got to love it..I troll on my pontoon using lead and mono running line on some of the smaller lakes here..

I have the same reel and it is mounted on a stiff metal trolling rod. My email is dplank214@aol.com. Let me know if you would like a picture.

dplank, you probably shouldn't post your email. Best to conduct private information via the pm function. If you are not familiar with pm (private message)you should learn it and use it.

Just a heads up.
