I am planning on purchasing a new 5 wt fly rod and reel. Ive already found a rod id like. It is a WW Griggs 9 ft 5wt with an IM6 graphite blank. The reel im looking at is an Okuma 5/6 wt. This is my first venture into buying a rod and reel as i am still using my grandfathers hand me down flyrod. What kind of experience have you guys had with okumas??? Any other suggestions for a reasonably priced reel??? Thanks for the help.
