couple weeks ago i got to use jason's 6wt spey paired up with a scientific anglers click pawl made by hardy. the scream of the reel and the lack of drag added another element to hooking, playing, and landing the sacred steelheadz and that i found pretty sweet. i know nothin about them. what to look for, etc. just lookin to match somethin up to my echo sr 8wt shawn your reel was sick! i heard that thing loud and clear when that fish blew up on your dry. what was that thing?? lookin to stay relatively cheap for now. when i get deeper into speyfaggery things may change. fancy hardy's, hats, cigars and scraves may or may not come into play. but for now around $200 is legit. or less. but that never happens. ps. i feel very ashamed.
