Fly Reel Review:
I have found your machined aluminum 7/9wt fly reel more than comfortable I have fished it for Small mouth several times and the drag and bearings seem to be up to any 8wt strain I could request from the reel. I plan to make this my go to fly reel for small mouth and larger brown trout.

Leaving for San Francisco this morning, once there Scott will pick me up and we will be off to our first destination, Reno, Nevada. From there on to Salt Lake City and then Breckenridge, Colorado for some fly fishing. BTW I used TSA Pre at Dulles airport, highly recommend. Keep shoes on, belt on, computer in bag, etc... like it should be!
Our route across country.
Scott looking very cool;-))
The Sierra Nevadas in CA on rte 80.
Fished the Blue River Tailwater below Dillon Reservoir in Frisco Friday afternoon, we "killed" them!
We drove from Frisco CO through Kansas and visited Nashville TN before staying in the Caddis Cabin (below) which is part of the South Holston River Lodge complex.
Scott's friend Shannon,
and Rachel visited and I gave Rachel the 2 hr "How to Fly Fish/Fly Cast Class". This is Rachel casting, waiting for the strike and with her first "Brownie" on a fly rod.
I picked up this beauty fairly early in the morning. He was busy eating breakfast when he made the mistake of eating the BWO emerger that I offered him.
