    I plan to try my hand at pike fishing later this month, and the new RIO WF7F pike line that I bought doesn't fit on the reel that I intended to use. So...now I'm looking for a used reel that will handle the WF7F line and at least 50 yards of 30 lb dacron backing.

    The reel doesn't have to be pretty, but it should be functioning smoothly. I'd also like to keep the cost down, since this pike fishing may not be a long term commitment.

    Please pm me if you have a reel that you would be willing to part with.

    thanks

    I have a brand new CHINHOOK 7/8wt fly reel. It is brand new in the box. A nice machined aluminum reel. It is made here in bc. Retails for $100.00. I'll sell mine for $50.00 shipped.

    I'm very interested. Do you know how much the reel weighs?

    Thanks

    Here are some photos of the three reels I mentioned in my reply. I have just been using them as line holders. Lines wouldn't be included in the sale.

    Tom. The reel weighs 6 ounces. It's pretty light.

    As he has done so many times during my life, my older brother got me out of a jam again: he gave me a reel that will meet my needs. It is an old Hardy Viscount disc drag 5/6 reel. Despite the fact that it is labeled a 5/6 reel, it holds my WF7F line and 50 yards of 30 lb dacron backing. I guess when this reel was made, the standard for rating reels was the double taper line, which takes up more space on a reel than today's standard, the WF line.

    I would like to express my thanks to those who kindly contacted me with options for a reel. If my brother had not come through for me, I would certainly have taken you up on one of them!

    Regards
    Tom

    There was a note attached to a post above that you had an issue with this transaction. Can you explain?

    Did you hid the red $ by mistake, or do you really have a problem with this series of posts?

    Thanks

    Tom

    I did? I am so sorry. I definitely have no problem with this post. I guess my big fat fingers must have hit it by mistake.

    I believe that the red $ can be removed by hitting the green $ in your post. This would keep people from thinking that I don't play fair.

    Thanks
