Re: J.Austin Forbes Aerial Bronze help ?

I have two of these fabulous reels. We are redoing some things in the house so many of my reels are packed away. If I can find one of these Aerials I will help you.

Re: Favorite budget reel?

Ihave a 5 line on a 1492, but that is for a short rod. Thinking a 1494/1594 for a longer rod.

Re: Reddington Behemoth vs. Okuma SLV

People use the SLV for big steelhead so that is quite the recommendation I think. Welcome to the forum.

Re: Gatti fly reel question

Gatti been in the business for awhile and they have made some nice rigs. I agree that flipping the washer (?) at the base of the spindle is the thing to try.

Re: Help a newbie pick a reel?

An Okuma SLV will serve you very well. Many big fish people use them on their spendy fly rods. Have a look at them if you can. Recommended.

Re: couple ?"s about tippet and leader

A very skilled fly fisher told me that he uses the strongest/biggest tippet that will fit thru the hook eye. He catches more fish that I ever have or will.
