Red Truck Flyfishing has a reel as well, similar to the classic Hardy series of reels.

Hi Guys

Thank you gentlemen for a warm welcome

And a huge amount of information for me to mull over

Some option's there id never heard of, i have just noticed that the Hardy light weight has no exposed rim whilst the Orvis Battenkill does surely this makes palming a bit tricky on the Hardy ?

Traditionally on reels with no exposed rim, the angler would use a finger to press the line against the spool arbor inside the reel

First a warm welcome to 'Our side of the Pond.' For trout fishing not having an exposed rim is not much of deal as just the drag of the fly line going through the guides provides quite a bit of pressure on the fish. Once you get up into the two plus pound size fish an exposed rim brings a lot to the party

For me, on C&P reels, an exposed rim is a must, even on trout reels.

I wouldn't have wanted to have this guy on without a palming rim

While the Abel are very nice my wife would kill me if i spent that much on a fly reel

But i have to say im very taken with the

# Orvis Battenkill S & P

# Red truck Diesel

# Hardy Light weight

# Cortland Retro

And whilst I want/ Like standard arbour I have to say Im very drawn to the Redington Drift a fine looking reel and good value too

You could always make yourself a custom drag like I did on these Medalists
