so tell us, where do you regularly catch 20" trout!!?? your streams have much bigger fish than my streams!


Not many, but I did have some wild rainbows in the Sierras make my reel work in some heavy turbulence Wed-Fri last week and was glad to have it there. When those suckers get rolling in the river coming down from the melting snow cap, they can really put on a show!

And yes, Jaybo, I'm still sick over that trout, mate!

A good reel at a good price..... How does a barely used Galvan OB for $129 sound? Can't beat that one with a stick... unless it's a fence post. A member of here got to it before I did and congrats on getting a nice addition to your tackle. Let me know how it looks when you get it.

jdaddy,
Guess where he got it? Wayne strikes again!

If you think your 5 wt reel is nothing but a line holder you need to fish some bigger water. Hook a real wild bow in a big and you'll wish you wouldnt have bought that 20 dollar reel!

Thanks Sight

Cound't have asked for a better price especially since it also had a Rio Grand WF 6F line on it. Will have to give a crack one of these days

He got RIO Grand not Gold. Now, is it still awesome? I would use Grand for shoelaces before using it to fish. Didn't care for it. I've got 2 new ones at home if you want to buy them. ;)

Get what cheap? Rio Gold? I did find it on ebay in 3wt for $40, 7wt for $48, 3, 4 & 6wt for $50. That's about as good as you're gonna do.

I got one this spring. I was bothered by the noise at first but I don't even notice it now. Yes, they are nice and are to last very long. FYI, if you fish is all day and your fingers are all pruned up, it makes a mess of your stripper finger.

For a second, I thought you were talking about silk lines. :)
