The breifly offered Cabela's SLA series was discontinued because of drag system failures. I was snookered into buying a few and need help if you have any tossed aside in a reel graveyard. Who would snooker a novice Fall River CA fly fisherman? It was Jeff Tauscher, PGA Proffessional and custom Knife Maker- Thanks Jeff! He does make a fine product and turned me into a great fly fisheman though. Just don't call a fly rod a pole.
