Fin-Nor FR10 fly reel, gold, with 300 yards 50# poly gelspun backing, with spare spool, never used, also with backing. Comes with one of the original boxes, and a new (in the bag) leather case for the reel from Fin-Nor. The case is one of the cool parts of this offering. Oh, also one neoprene case from Fin-Nor. The reel spool has a rock mark on it which is from a wave trying to take me out to sea while striper fishing in Maine. A friend photographed the incident from a distance, later saying "so I can show your wife how you died". Still a friend. Anyhow, back to the reel, $475, with $50 going to the effort to stop the Pebble Mine in Alaska.
Great drag on the reel. I'm switching things up, having gotten this reel at a time not as sweet as the one I'm in now. I hope that makes sense. Pause and smile. I wasn't going to sell, and then thought that President Obama would like me to do this for our economy and renewable energy effort. Whose got the energy for this reel?
Thanks to Speypages for letting me post.
