Bumping this up for the guy asking about a reel.

If you don't mind Chinese made stuff try Piscifun. I've picked up a couple of their reels and have pleasantly surprised. They are machined aluminum. The most expensive reel is right around $100. I also have a few Redington Crosswaters that I like, cheap and expendable.

I just looked up the Piscifun web site and there are about six fly reel models, in various line sizes, from about $35 - $100. They appear to be nice looking reels although I have no idea of the workmanship.

I have a 5/6 Sword, 3/4 Sword 2, and a 5/6 Crest. I really like the Sword 2. I have it paired with 7'6" 3 weight Redington Path rod. It's becoming my new favorite setup. I fished the Jemez River yesterday and loved how it performed. Didn't catch anything but man it was great to get out.
The Crest reel is a nice reel. The only thing i don't like about it is that the spool disingages by "popping off" the spool. But everything is sealed. If i were to do it again i would buy the Platte instead.

That is pretty much how all the Lamson spools are removed. You hold the reel with two hands with the spool facing down. Put your thumbs into the ports on the housing and press down firmly until the spool is freed. Keep your undex fingers under the spool so it doesn't fall out on the floor or ground. I've had Lamson's for over twenty years and never had a problem. I guess I just got used to it. Great reel. I have a 1.5 Litespeed and a Speedster.

That's interesting. Here I thought it was just a cheap Chinese trick. I'm actually relieved a little.
