    If you're going to try it, I would buy both the spring cam and the drag adjustment screw, as they could have different threads between the knock offs and the pfluegers. Then just pry up the clip that...

    No one has mentioned the Orvis Frequent Flier series, but I'd certainly look into that. I have a Stowaway 7 8wt and should anything happen to it I'd be looking at the Orvis rods.

    Pflueger made a lot of fly reels. It's worth anywhere between $5 and $250, but most likely in the $20 range. What is the model name and number? Pictures would really help too.
