Re: FS - Abel Big Game 0 Reel

Thanks guys. They don't make these anymore and you won't find one nicer. Perfect for that special 3wt or 4wt rod. I think you'll love the reel.

Re: Bauer Rogue Reels - Opinions/Reviews

X3!!!

I have several Bauer reels both MSL and LM. They all have been flawless. I have no idea why they get such little respect but you can often get some unbelievable deals on lightly used ones...

Re: Winston pre IM6 9' 3wt not sure what I have

I agree that the finish on these vintage Winston rods is beautiful. Although I know tight line nymphing with long light weight rods is very popular, I very rarely nymph fish with my 3 weights. ...

Re: How long does it take from your home to the water?

About 45 minutes for me. I actually enjoy the drive as it is all on two lane roads through pretty countryside.

Re: Winston pre IM6 9' 3wt not sure what I have

Re: Vintage heavier-duty reel?

I have seen some very good buys on the Abel Big Game 3N reels on ebay. $250 or so. Great reel for 7,8 and 9wt lines with plenty of backing. I have had mine for years and it has been flawless. You...

Re: Reel for Sage 7wt (without totally breaking the bank)

I don't think you can go wrong with any Galvan reel. I have the OB-2, OB-3, Torque 4 and Torque 5. All are extremely well made and have been flawless.

Re: Scott s4s7or 8 wt for general bonefishing in the Bahamas

Interested in hearing the comparison as well. I have a S4 5wt I really like but I haven't tried one in a heavier line weight. I still use my S3s 9wt for S. Andros as it seems the wind always is...

Re: what do think about bauer reelsiu

Re: Reel for Hardy 5wt Deluxe Bamboo Rod?

You might try an Orvis Battenkill 5/6 English made click and pawl. They regularly sell on Ebay used for $100 or less. Another good choice for a more moderate priced reel that looks good on cane...

Re: Reel for my new Sage One 4 wt

JMO but I would check out a Galvan Torque. I have 3 and couldn't be happier with them. I would also look at the Bauer and Abel reels. All three are made in the US if that makes any difference to...

Re: What's the worst fly rod you've ever had?

I apologize if my comments on the Biix came across as critical of your post as they certainly weren't meant to be. I was just using it to illustrate my point that " one man's dog is another man's...

Re: What's the worst fly rod you've ever had?

Dan, I agree. An earlier post mentioned a "worst" rod that is one of my favorites. A Winston Biix 8'6" 4wt. I love the soft tip many hate on the rod. It certainly isn't fast as was marketed by...

Re: Backup Rods

When I'm fishing on a day trip close to home I rarely take a back up rod. The most I'll be is 1 hr or less from my house so it wouldn't be a big deal if something happened to the rod I've taken. I...

Re: What's the worst fly rod you've ever had?

Mine was the first bamboo rod I bought. An Orvis Midge/Nymph. It had two tips; one to make a 7'6" Midge and another to make a 7'9" Nymph rod. It was a beautiful rod but was unbelievably S L O W. ...

Re: I went trout fishing ( LOTS of pictures!! )

Beautiful and very nice pics! That little shiner looks a lot like what we call warpaint shiners locally. They thrive in the trout streams and generally like the same feeding lanes as the trout. ...
