    Rods are harder to photograph unless you do a long distance or wide angle shot of someone casting or landing a fish If you check out the Dry Fly Purist thread I put some rods on the first photo but could only get the handles and part of the shafts.

    Then I remembered this picture, rod and reel in the middle of nowhere;

    Here's my rod picture. Part of a flotsum sculpture. It's a $25, 10', 8wt from Sportman's Guide. I use it all the time.

    Some very nice hardware you've got there shotgun.

    I got a new reel; new to me that is, a Billy Pate Marlin, old but spotless and huge. This is the biggest of the Pate anti reverse group but there is an issue. No pictures posted because the reel (although offered as a left hand wind) is a right hand wind. In order to render it to left hand retrieve I would need to send it to the manufacturer in Florida 'Tibor' and rumor has it that it will cost me 100 dollars 'more' to change it over!

    Bummer, I have it packaged for post and must drive to Anchorage tomorrow for a meeting, while on the road I'll call Tibor to be sure but will probably place it into Priority Mail back to the seller at the Airport terminal......................

    Yep. It gets the most use as it's my 5wt. The Lamson is my 4 and Ross is the 7.

    These reels are no longer in service but the Pfuleger 1495 DA has been with me for many years. The smaller 1492 1/2 was my first small stream reel, I used it on a 5' Lamiglass. The old martin 63 was just an extra reel that I never used. I have the Matrin MG-3 and that is the one that still gets use.

    I have noticed that, we both have a thing for Bauers and Abels....Your Abels are much more impressive though, both mine are black. I do want either a Pacific Striper, or skull and cross bones super 9, we'll see what the future holds..... Like they say great minds think alike, maybe it's a Cali thing.
