What's in your vise?

That is one pretty reel. That would look pretty good on my 9140 & 9150 spey rods, however the rods are not that pretty green. The fly looks nice as well.
Thanks speyrod GB,
Joe saracione makes a really nice reel and I have to give him kudos for making this reel in green. He also made a solid face reel in the same color and size a while back for me, check out his Facebook page for better pictures of this reel.
