Thread: Best reel for Winston 8' 4wt tmf ?

  1. Default Re: Best reel for Winston 8' 4wt tmf ?

    I use an Abel TR1 on 4wts of 8' or shorter. I am looking at TR2 in olive for 8'6or longer. I think they look good on the classic rods. I have never fished the TMF but have a few IM6's and the TR reels would go great on all of them.

    I thought hard about the Abel Creek fo my 4 wt ZXL. Stillwaters fly shop offers free line with the reel, but I got a heck of a deal on a redingiton drift and Rio gold line. I'm happy with the Redington so far.

    A Winston Perfect would be the cat's meow.

    I've been all over the place trying to decide (my wife is ready to kill me - she is tired of hearing about reels). I believe I will order a abel tr1 today. I probably will go for gold or bass yellow - just to give it a little color.

    Good choice, a lot of guys like the deep green to match, but i think some kind contrast looks better.

    My Orvis Hydros LA III balances out perfectly with my 8ft 4wt GVX. Loaded with rio gold wf4 and 100 yds of backing.

    I just picked up an Abel TR1 in platinum with zebra wood handle to go with my newly acquired 8' 4wt BIIx.

    I finally ended up with the Abel TR1 in black (with free backing and Abel nippers). I am putting Wulff TT 4 wt F line on it. Thanks again for all the ideas folks!

    Free Abel nippers! Keep in mind that TT is a 1/2 size heavy.
