Pete Grey may be interested in you decide to "Release" it.

I'm going to hold onto it for a while. Plus, the market for them has pretty much tanked over the years.They're a nice collectors item but that's about it now. Pretty much every reel co makes a sealed drag reel that is lighter in wt and larger in diameter. Plus, when those reels have issues you can probably get them fixed.

I can't part with my "collection" either.

So a couple my cats were bugging me to go out problem is they like it when your out with them . So now I'm sitting there in drizzle and wind waiting for them to get bored . So I grab a cup of coffee and my fly bag to sort out some junk . Maybe try for some artsy fartsy pics . Might as well was still fuming over the three gems I tied yesterday . Father time and arthrittus wouldn't let me play. Probably wouldn't bother me so much if I just had kept active tying like last winter . P9160008.JPG.872fd5ff79a82af496bbc44938861345.JPGP9180008.JPG.95b2517ff5d829790f0c1062b9b38641.JPGP9180007.JPG.2884d53ba61fb1aea5078c222d2b7878.JPGP9180006.JPG.c4189aa2fc8dd0ce14b5f3605baa0e2f.JPG

Getting ready for Block. I need to pack up my crap today. Top - bottom: 10wt Burk (probably the best rod that I have ever thrown, ~20 years old); 9wt CTS courtesy of HL (just a c hair behind the Burk); 6wt Burk (maybe some shad around, too light for bass... :worms: ); 8wt CTS (again HL); T&T 12'6" 6wt - either overhead or casting practice. The damn albies better be around.
