Re: Thin body trout reel?

I settled on a Hardy 3000 Ultralight. Fished it one time so far and appears to be what I was looking for. Very nice Korean built reel at a nice price.
Thanks for all the input.

Wonder Cloth for cleaning fly lines?

Friend of mine swears by them. Says that he doesn't even need to lube the line after cleaning it with a dampened Wonder Cloth.
