    Thanks Ard, i have a nice sage rod and also a Fenwick that i might set this up on. I use amnesia line for steelhead fishing typically, but have a reel set up with that already. Mighty turn this into my fly reel. Thanks for the help.

    You've said a mouthful brother, my river is flooded out at the moment and I don't care, still going this weekend.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Interesting looking specimen you've got there. I really like the solid spooled reels. I've never seen one of those either, which likely isn't a shock to you given the lack of information about them. As a suggestion, you might want to contact Thomas & Thomas or Ross Reels and see what sort of information they might provide you. Dimensions, production years, approximate number manufactured, and MSRP of time produced.

    As another suggestion, you might want to get in touch with Len Codella who is an expert of sorts of vintage and some contemporary tackle. He might be able the value of the reel.

    Looking forward to hearing what you find out.

    Thanks for the advise jay. I will look into them both. I would love to learn more about this reel. It looks to be an awesome piece of craftsmanship. Hopefully I'll be waist deep steelhead fishing soon enough.

    Great reel. I own a couple of the R series.
    The Ross Reels web page has info about your reel in the Product Help section.
    Check out the links below for diameter, width, weigh and line capacities.
