Well my b-day has come and passed so Ive come into some $$$$$ from family and friends. Its kind of funny they dont even dare send gifts anymore they send cash so I can pick my own gifts out. "I sure do love flyfishing". Anyways Ive been looking at reels for a 3 wt and am leaning towards one of the original Battenkill Reels from Orvis. So,,,,, opinions please. Ive been comparing Battenkills, Drakes(Cabelas), Okuma, LL Bean any others that are right around $100 and bullet proof please feel free to mention.
