I really like Hardy reels, I got my first in 1979 and at one time had a regular collection. When the British pound sterling rose to nearly twice the value of the dollar two years ago, I sold many of my reels. They were all in mint condition and most sold for twice what I had paid for them.

I used the money from the reels to buy the camera and len's that now take the pictures. The reel in the More From Alaska thread is a Hardy Cascapedia, it's an early production UK. built model.

I knew Lockjaw was a fishermen but now I know another member who fishes, Big Iron. That's kinda cool. I'll post some salmon pictures soon.
