jbird, your images require no captions. CO Caddis, I knew that the Speedster might be the only Lamson I could like but now that I see the Porsche style script form its namesake, I'm sold. On a ONE no less. Nice rig.

Salt, the lamson performs as beautifully as it looks. Lightning fast retrieval speed, and no line barreling. A truly great reel. LOVE the ONE/Speedster combo.

I have two categories of reels. Jewels and tools. Although they're all tools, here's some of my "workhorses"

Jay, those are great pics of fish and tackle. That makes me want to get up to Oregon for some serious river sessions!

The rod is a Scott A2 10' 7wt. The reel is a good ole Redington GD. A true steelhead workhorse.

Picked up an Orvis encounter II for my 6wt. Seems like a good reel for the money.

I recently obtained this Pflueger Medalist, turned pillar with line guard, 1492, as part of a past great fly fisher's tackle collection. It is identical to my first fly reel except mine seems to have not enjoyed as much fishing time as this well loved example. I am posting this cool image less for my own Reel Love than for the many of you who still admire these rugged work horse Akron, Ohio-built classics.
