Posts: 1Let me start off by saying I dont fly fish. I recently bought a bunch of ice fishing stuff for dirt cheap to add to my collection. The guy I bought this stuff from said he had two cabelas inline reels, but the drag was messed up. With farther inspection I believe there are fly reels. The are Cabelas ZT 100. I cant find any info on these as they aren't made anymore. If anyone can confirm these are fly reels and would even want to buy them let me know and we can arrange some things.

I doubt you will get many responses from members of this forum. Almost all are fly fishers. I personally have never ice fished in my entire sixty years of fishing. Maybe a few members from the northern hard water states will be able to offer some assistance.

Pictures of the reels would help.

Not a fly reel?

Yeah, they're making fly-type reels into ice fishing reels these days...maybe these guys miss their fly tackle during ice fishing season? Reminds me of steelhead fisherman putting spinning reels on fly rods and then calling them "noodle rods"...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
