Last night I finally ordered a reel to complement my 8wt rod that I built this winter on a St. Croix blank. For my first project, I think it went fairly well, but that is another story. I ended up going with a Redington Large Arbor 7/8 with an Airflo multi tip. Rich at Fly Rod and Reel gave me a good discount with his Fly from the swap, and recommended the line. I figured I would give it a try and it does give me some flexibility without breaking the bank. Hope it turns out well!
