Gary, not sure exactly what you mean by all occasions, but usually if you buy either a cassette reel or a 3 pack such as a Lamson, then you will get a case with it to fit them all. If you’re talking reel and separate spools, then there are so many choices but there’ll all do the job, pretty sure Orvis, Wychwood and many others do them. Abel ones sometimes show on eBay and are pretty sturdy.

All occasions as in I have a reel and will by 2 spools to put different lines on.. I'd had a look for an Orvis one.. I'd just like one to carry the reel and 2 spare spools..will keep looking just wondered what general thoughts were.

If you want something inexpensive and fit for purpose, suggest you look to the coarse fishing world. A reel case or bag by Drennan, Daiwa or Preston should see you right.

What is the reel you have Gary?
Can give you a case that takes reel and 3 spools?
regards
Bert

Most fly fishers soon turn into tackle tarts ... I meant collectors. Probs won't be long before you get another reel (and so on).
Have a look at www.fishingmegastore.com (which is Glasgow Angling Centre) they have a few to choose from, all good value and good service (i.e. haven't had a problem in more than ten years). Stillwater are the cheapest, Simms most expensive, but there are lots in between.
Safe!
