    Probably should consider the 1.5 hour drive. I'm not overly familiar with eastern PA. and there's a good reason for that. The only trip I made there was to visit Broadheads Creek because that was one...
  13. Re: Where Can I Find Spools for Discontinued Orvis Reels?

    It may come down to how many years the model and size was in sale circulation and how many spools are out there. My experiences have been with reels like the Hardy Lightweight series - Marquis - and...

    Re: 2/3/4 reel on 7'4" 4 wt Echo Glass?

    I like big reels and glass rods can be a bit on the tip heavy side so I'd go 4/5/6 and put the backing to it.
  18. Re: Where Can I Find Spools for Discontinued Orvis Reels?
