Dear members,
Greetings from Geneva, Switzerland. I am Sagar Khavnekar and I am working with a Swiss Fishing reel maker as a part of my business training. We are makers of advanced and next-generation fly fishing reels here in Geneva. We are planning to enter global market and would like to know your valuable opinion. Hence I would like to ask if you could complete our survey on fly fishing reels. Your name is optional but will allow us to offer you an early bird discount when we enter the market.

Looking forward to your views and opinions.
Best regards and happy fishing!

this must be a 'phly phishing 'post...'

bad pun day, 39 degrees out, driving rain, and high winds on the 'opener' weekend has me pretty sour.

wait it out and see about next weekend,

I completed the survey and there are many questions. I think the makers are going to market a graphite composite reel (or some other lighter than metal synthetic)

They ask for comments on many of the questions towards the end of the survey and I pointedly told them that many guys with adequate disposable income and an eye for the finer things are not going to buy a composite reel at least not any that look like the ones I have seen.

Big maker rods like Sage, Loomis, and Winston are getting to the point where many of their buyers just won't be able to afford a new rod. Notwithstanding that though many guys already have amassed a nice collection of $400 - $700 fly rods and aren't likely to be putting a $50 graphite reel onto that rod.

One of the questions was quite funny in that it asked "would you buy this reel if it had a GPS, compass, and counter built into it?" I told them that none of my friends or acquaintances would likely be running to buy that reel.

I looked over your website, read the info available, and I'm not all that interested in the product you are representing. Nothing personal, no offense intended but I will stick with reels I'm familiar with or at least heard about vs. an unfamiliar brand with no prices listed or track record to speak of.

I am really impressed with the Lamson Liquid line lately (there's that alliteration thing again) and I can stop by my local Fly Shop for this brand and support the local economy at the same time.

Tight lines, and do you personally use the reel you are selling for your fishing? Just curious...

What is the cost of the reel in US dollars and how much would the shipping cost to the state of Pennsylvania?
