    Any size or style? I used to be a dealer for Cliff so I occasionally come across one for sale. Have you checked Vintage Fly Tackle? They had one not too long ago.

    Thanks for the tip but none are listed at Vintage Fly Tackle. I’m looking for either a trout size or tarpon size. I had tried to get one years ago from Just Reels but after a very long wait I gave up.

    Yep, that was me and Cliff quit supplying dealers in the mid-'90's, and I had about two dozen that were on order. He had constant problems with anodizers and lost a lot of his production by having to scrap stuff when they came back from anodizing. He eventually just made a few reels each year for his friends, but dropped the half dozen dealers he had. I'll keep an eye out for one for you. Trout sizes are Models A and B. Tarpon is probably an F if you're going to use a 12 weight. That one also came in a dual-mode version.

    I never faulted you for your efforts. You kept me informed. It’s a shame Cliff’s hard work was at the mercy of anodizers. I appreciate you keeping me in mind if run across one.
