    I pulled this reel out of Island recycle center last weekend here on Whidbey. Not bad shape and only $5. Don't know much about it but looks like a relativly new Uniqua, maybe the 80's?

    nice find and that reel is worth many times what you paid. Lots of information on the Classic Fly Rod forum forUniquas. $5.00!

    Not sure
    Looks older to me and worth a hell of a lot more than $5! Post your pics on Clark's in the Classic Reels section or in Reel Talk on the ORCA forum to find out how old it is and what it might be worth. Lots of experience on both forums.

    Jeff,

    You did very well. I'd go to Clark's and see what else you (and we) can learn about it.

    Thanks for the information guys. I have not been around to do much research on this reel but will
    Post it, as suggested, and let you all know what I learn.

    Looking at the vintage rod and reel pictures posted on this board I can see this good deal may cost me a lot of money in the long run.

    Jeff
