    Not yet! :)

    Actually, we've been together a long time...and this hobby pales in comparison to some of my older ones.

    Besides, how can you say no to these things?

    For me:

    Steelhead/Salmon - anything in a widebody Hardy Perfect with a 1912 check. However, I am clumsy as hell so I couldn't justify actually taking one of those rare beasts to the river and banging it on a rock during one of my inevitable falls. So I got the next best thing, a Henshaw.

    Trout - again a traditionalist, I think the Hardy St. George has the best capacity/weight/classic coolness combination. Finally, the third leg of the my Hardy triumvirate... The Bougle in any of it's varied incarnations is also hard to beat as a basic reel for steelhead and trout fishing. Looks cool too.

    I've always had a thing for the vintage Seamaster reels, especially the 4" Tarpon.
