    Got my 8 wt slammed in a car door right before my steelhead trip, turns out a 5 wt isn't the best tool for fatty silvers, I mean it works but sometimes you just want to get them in ;)

    I also need a good reel for it

    Peace

    Actually, I need a rod also but I do have reels. I have several US Made Pflueger Medalist 1496 1/2 reels which are great for steelhead and salmon fishing where the drag doesn't need to be as delicate or smooth. They will hold your 8wt line and probably 300yds of 30lb backing. I also have one with a custom reel seat someone welded on to fit smaller rod reel seats. I will sell one for $25 and will ship it with insurance for another $5. I take PayPal also or you can stop by the house in N. Seattle if interested. I only use Pfluegers and have never had a problem with them.

    If you order from them make sure they are in stock. I ordered a TiMax and after two weeks of waiting finally canceled my order. Good Luck.
