cabelas has their SR3's on sale starting at $100. it is a beefy large arbor reel with a smokin drag on it. I have the largest one they make with lots of backing for freshwater bonefish. if anyone is in the market, this may be somthin for you to check out.

rich, on my SR3 I use 8wt wf floating. I have 2 main carp rigs that are 8wt.'s and a 7wt that I sometimes use if the fish will be smaller. both my 8's are wf floating. then I usually go with a 9' 4x or 5x leaders. in my flyrod arsenal I have 1-3wt, 1-5wt, 1-7wt, 2-8wt.'s and 1-9wt. that covers just about anything. I may get cocky this year and chase those golden bones w/a 3wt!! I have a 5wt size pflueger trion mid arbor reel with ALOT of backing on it, that ought to prove to be a adventure!! I really like that SR3 alot, the drag is incredible. I was looking at a orvis vortec (VO2) but it is $375 :wacko: so I think I'll stick to the SR3. I would like to get another while cabelas has them on sale but a little smaller one for smallies.

I find that wf floating covers all the fly fishing I do. even though when carpin I use weighted nymphs and stuff that sinks, I'm sight fishing in skinny water the 9' leader is enough to get down to where I want to be. then I use the floating line as a bite indicator as most of the pick ups are very light.

I like the flouro leaders. rio makes a saltwater leader that is used for bonefish. the saltwater one is a little stiffer and helps to turn over weighted flies easier. I'm sure there are many others than rio too.

Have you checked out the NEW Cortland Endurance line of fly reels?

The larger arbor casette models, feature 2 spools, a LARGE drag knob, the storage case accommodates 4 spools,

and less than $100.

The NEW '08 mid arbor models are less than $60. Great reel for the money.

that sounds like a great deal. I really like that orvis vortec(VO2) but at $375 I could buy several reels. that orvis has a huge drag, it shows it on their site. it is cork on rulon. I 've been hearing more and more about rulon, not sure if it something new?? I dont know there is so much good stuff out there these days. too much gear and not enough money!!
