Default Re: tarpon reel

Hi ajnanaimo,

I think you will like the Nautilus CCF 12T. It is an over sized 12D with a bigger drag. No incoming click and holds a ton of line. I am a fan of Nautilus Reels but have never seen or fished the Tarpon reel.

The Billy Pate Tarpon reel is hard to beat. You can get it in an Anti-reverse model. It Has an in and out click.

Since this is a major purchase and will be put to hard use I can't recommend one over the other because I don't know which is the best reel. Find a fly shop that sells both and ask for their recommendation.

This shop carries both of the reels you are interested in.

Frank
