Good luck with your new rod Capt. If you see someone with a two hander in October fishing around Siesta or Long boat stop by and say hello. I'll be fishing with my Atlantis looking for Big reds, snook and perhaps a wayward tarpon while takin in some Florida sun.

Tight Lines,
Greg.

Capt., I can highly recommend the Reddington AL 7/8 (large arbor reel) for your new Loomis. Great drag for bonefish and small tarpon, large arbor for good line pick up and less set in the flyline, and most important, the drag is sealed. Also, they can be had for less than $200 in fly shops, and much less on line.

Regards,
