If the 3wt rod is light, take $99 and go get an UL Classic from Bass Pro Shops. I have one, and it's a nice little machined reel.

Peace,

Robert

Reel is a Quarrow (house brand from Dicks?). Click on the drag is unusually loud and placement of support bar between sides interferes with line retrieval in my opinion. The line, WF 5wt came with the reel so I don't know its manufacturer. Not real happy with it at this time. Not going to go out and spend more for another 5wt at this time. Need to get a real light 3wt for the 3wt Redington rod I told you about earlier. The Ovis Battenkill II I have works better on the 3wt TFO rod, too heavy for the Redington. Will look at the Orvis Battenkill I and see if it's suitable.

Mike, Now I just need to figure out what colors and quantities I want to order. What colors of chenille do you use the most? I'll let you know when I get some in.

Hi Cliff, I have some bulk boa yarn in several colors. We could do a material swap once you get the chenille. Oh and I also should have extra tubing in different colors like I used to tie the toy dragon fly.
