Ross Gunnison G1 - Early Pre 94 Reel

This is a very early Ross Gunnison G1 fly reel, pre '94. One of the earliest Gunnison reels made. In addition to the pre '98 Gunnison reels, Ross also had a pre '94 version which had the early 3 piece spool and single plunger. This reel was purchased in the very late 80's, fished a couple of times, and set aside. The reel shows little to no wear, and still has the original box, blank warranty card, and information sheet. This early version is a nice little collectible reel with a remarkably stout drag system.

I love this reel. I got mine in the early '90s and have been fishing it ever since. I'm tempted to scoop it up, but I better not...not sure what I would do with it - so better leave it for one you to grab to make that 4wt sing.
