RE: New Fly Reel Advise
A good reel to check out and they are hard to track down, is the Martin Multiplier. Cabelas did have them. They have a five to one ratio which is great for when the fish do an about face and head towards you. Also a real good adjustable drag. I own one and have had salmon and steelhead beat the hell out of it, it's never let me down and I have a box of other pricey reels that have fell victim to a screaming king. Hope this helps. Good luck this year.
Stress is just one hookset away from being gone.
