Love my English made Marquies...
Scientific Anglers System 11 (predecessor to the Marquis) made by Hardy.
Bronze bushings in the spools, nickle silver line guard and wonderfull sound with line running away.
No way is ten going to be enough!
But here are a few to start with...
I added pics to my reply on the fist page if you'd care to see them. ('37 Medalist)
Wow. So nice them old Youngs....
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
