    That would be a lot of pictures. There's more reels in a box around here somewhere. if I get a chance I'll open up the Bronson. I know Rip likes it, this is the second time he's pulled it out of the lineup. I may have to mail it to him.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    Yeah baby

    Wow, what a group you've got there! I love the rubbing on that old Young and that's a mighty fine condition on that Odyssey All are beautiful reels for sure, I just cleaned up my old Medalist 1494 and a 1492 1/2 also.

    I am about to order a big fat Henschel #5 anti reverse, does any one know this reel?

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
