  1. Default reel for beginner's new rod

    Hello,
    I am just getting started and ordered a rod : GLX 9ft SD Metolius 4-Piece Rod - 6WT . What reels are recommended ? It sounds as if the reel is the least important of the package.
    Thanks

    Default Re: reel for beginner's new rod

    I'd go with either a Lamson Velocity or a Ross Rythym.

    A SA GPX or a Rio Grand line would be good to get started with as well.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

  3. Default single action

    dont even consider anything else than a single action reel. Get one to matc your rod and your off.
