Thanks Mike! That particular reel is a great fav with the fellows in the UK. Sounds like what Shamono (sp?) did with one of their reels (Venture series). Put it out under the G. Loomis brand name in the US.If you goggle Vision in Fly Fishing , you will come to the Vision web site . Go to reels and click on Koma Salmon reel . Same reel , comes in black and titianium colour . Excellent value .
