What is your holy grail fly reel?

Let's have a little fun on the last day of 2018. If money were no object, what would be the fly reel you'd most like to own? Charlton? Henschel? Bogdan? Megoff Ti? Another bench-made reel?

I've always loved the look and feel of the original Charltons. The newer Makos are nice, but... not the same. I also lust after Bogdans.

The Van Staal c vex and Islander LX are the reels I just had to have

 

i might get one of those Abel’s with the brown trout artwork for a 5 wt  they look really nice 

 

But with all these reels i tell myself this is the last reel I will ever need, but that’s just BS isn’t it? There’s always something else

Jee wiz!..... I forgot about those S&W green stamps. If I remember it correctly it took forever to fill the book. Did the A&P markets give them out ?

 

I am not in need of any more reels at the moment, but I always ponder the what if.........

I've always wanted a Billy Pate Bonefish. A Bogdan would be nice too but since I don't really fish in frsh water at all it would be more of an art piece than a fishing reel I suppose...
