If I buy a Sage 00 TXL flyrod,what would be the best reel ? I like the loud sound of a click and pawl reel. Thank you

sage makes a really nice reel and double taper line specifically for the txl. it's a bit pricey for such light fishing( $275), but it's very light and smooth with a click and paul drag. likewise, the line is perfect for the rod. it presents the fly very delicately and casts further than i would have expected.

I second nm's suggestion. those reels are prfect or that aplication. Thera are many light reels out there, but many are like little toy chipmunk reels. The large arbor ones are sized a little more for humans.

Lamson Waterworks ULA Purist series. Large arbor and 2.75 ounces.

Just don't drop it!

For really lightweight I belive the Danielsson (former Loop) the Migde to be by far the best. Only 2,75oz, and LA with 3,27''. Quite strong, but no disk drag, and be carefull with exposure to sand/dirt.
