WW, are you single?
LOL!!!! I would be if my wife had any clue about the gear i have....
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?
I guess I should mention........... my Olsen will be ready at the end of March. No big deal though.
OH YEAH......thats the good shit!!!
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.
Showoff, just kidding that is some nice looking metal!
I've always had a thing for the vintage Seamaster reels, especially the 4" Tarpon.
OOH yea-a 4 1/2 Seamaster is one I'd like to have.
I also like the FinNor's and Billy Pate's
I just picked this up from Pete...
way cool D. pre war 4"...gotten a bit of that bug now...
Pan...send me your olson and you can get mine in july OK?
You got a deal.
Your a good man!!!!
July sounds pretty good considering Will waited 15 months for his...maybe he's getting caught up with orders
Ya, I had forgot I had even ordered one...lol! He's a busy man and for good reason.
SHIT...maybe he means NEXT july?....
Still got a deal Pan?
Of course. Ya, mine was about 15 months too.
