    For a second there I thought you were talking about me since you kept calling me George last Saturday! :rofl: I'm sure your George can sing better than I can, but I think it's pretty close on the looks.

    Congrats GMan - I love those old Hardys. Nothing coming out of their factory these days compare (IMO) to the character of the original St George, St Aiden, Salmons, etc.

    Cheers,

    I hate you right handed bastards...you get all the good stuff. Do they make a LHW St. George? I've never seen one.

    Yeah G-Man whats the two handles? So when that fish is ripping (you know the one) you need to make a decision on what handle? Or is it backup if the other handle failed? ha-ha

    I would guess it must be to improve the odds by a factor of four, to bruising your knuckles or bashing your fingernails.....right? :rofl:

    "George" is a very pretty thing .. but there are very viable alternatives .. if you want you great, great, great grand children to be using one of 'your reels.' Google "SpeyCo." Have three, and Boys and Girls .. you could pound nails with this 'bit 'o kit.' Amazing reels for less money from something being turned out in China.

    Oh, these are all hand made just for you .. just out side of Green Bay, Wiss ... Sorry if that's the wrong team address.

    Sweet looking reels Fred, with two kids in college I'm not seeing one in my near future. I'll just have to stick with the medalist ( it landed a 12# buck yesterday!)
