    Stunning. I'd be afraid to let it ever see water.

    I've got shotguns that have engraving....never even thought about fly reels. My wife is going to be pissed.

    It's a fly reel, made and engraved for you personally. Not fishing it on every opportunity would be like investing in a '67 corvette stingray with a 427 and not driving it!

    Scrolling down while reading the post, I'm thinking it's going to be ok, maybe a nice fish or fly. But really, that is truly lovely, something to cherish and pass down due to it's uniqueness and what it means to you.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My guess is that the engraver enjoyed making this as much you enjoyed receiving it. Kudos to you for turning him loose to do as he wished!

    That thing is beautiful...too good for the likes of me....wouldn't do to have some krusty ol fart like me sitting on the waters edge, bawling my eyes out 'cause I dropped it on the rocks....which would be inevitable.

    That's amazing, thanks for sharing. I just picked up a set of hand-made gravers tools off of Ebay, hope to be doing stuff like this soon!
