If your $60 dollar fly reel is an Expedition Large Arbor 5/6/7 wt reel from Stone Creek, you can catch a lot of fish. Sat 4/17/2010 I was on the Longmeadow Ranch with Guide Tad Howard Owner of www.coloradotrouthunters.com . Tad had the disc drag on the Expedition almost full stop to keep the fish from running very far after hookup. The disc drag on the Expedition is excellent for an affordably priced reel. You can expect nothing less from a Stone Creek Product. Stone Creek has been supplying quality affordable fly fishing tackle for 25 years now. And you just don’t last in the fly fishing industry that long by selling bad gear.
Here is a slide show of what you can catch with an Expedition Reel.
These are some pretty nice fish brought to the net on a 60 dollar reel.
