Default Re: What is the best trout fly reel ever made?

My Ross Canyon 2 is heavy (relative to my others), and doesn't have the most drag settings, but it's the first one I bought with my own hard-earned money when I started to branch out form my dad's enormous supply of gear, and I've probably caught more trout on it than any of my others, so I'd say its the best.

I'm willing to bet that no one else who responds to this thread would say that the Ross Canyon is the best trout reel ever made, but it is to me for what it will always mean to me and for the fish it's caught

Not a fan of the "fish on the bank" pics, but I was careful to keep this guy on my rubber-basket net, he was too pretty not to get a pic, it just kinda happened this way and I still love this pic

I also like Ross canyon reels have 5 in different sizes and some extra spools.
