    Depends on type of fishing, river or stillwater! line weight etc and what rod to teamed up with.
    2 to look at Wychwood Truefly SLA reel, 2 spare spools and case.
    Greys GX series again reel, 2 spare spools and case.
    There are 2 sizes in each model.

    try a okuma SLV, solid and reliable for the price. I have several for my 3wt, 6wt, and 10wt rods and use both in fresh and saltwater with no problems.
    Just My Tuppenceworth!!

    Welcome to the forum, have a look at the BFR Modula reels I've recently bought a pair and rate them highly. [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/BFR-Modula-Titanium-Fishing-Reel/dp/B004M3LV36"]BFR Modula 75 Titanium Fly Fishing Reel Wt 5 - 7 (plus 2 spare spools): Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Leisure@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21rtL9u2TLL.@@AMEPARAM@@21rtL9u2TLL[/ame], lightweight and with spare spools (cassette style)
    I used to like fishing because I thought it had some larger significance. Now I like fishing because it's the one thing I can think of that probably doesn't.

    Yes, welcome, maybe see you at Ladybower, you've only got to go past one pub to get there.
    You never get a second chance to make a first impression but everyone deserves a second chance.
