Great Lakes Steelhead flyreels?
 
I have an old Aurora Trillium TD2 flyreel on my custom 7wt flyrod.
I think the new Orvis Vortex VO2 would be another beauty.
How 'bout y'all? What's your fave?

Rowdy,

Check out the Lamson Velocity 3 - 3.5 reels.

Affordable and big enough to hold some backing if you want to use it for Kings also. Not that a steelhead wont get into your dacron but you know what I mean.

I bought a 3.5 for use here. The Orvis Vortex would be fine as long as it's big enough. I used to fish for Kings in Ontario and its tributaries, those fish get big and will act just as crazy as an Alaskan will.

Just get a big enough gun buddy, what ever brand it is size matters.
