Been about 6years since we last cracked into the 50's.
Got a few in the mid 30#'s and a 53# yesterday...

too funny - I use my Crown bottle bags for my reels as well!

Bill that is just a "nobody" reel - probably some made in China thing that looks "reel" good and will explode on a decent striper.

Go with one that has real good gears and better drag system...the one Zack mentions is good for the money. My preference, and what I own are Abels = Abel Reels - Fly Fishing | Sport Fishing | Saltwater & Freshwater Fly Fishing Reels and you can't beet Tibor either = Welcome to Tibor Reel Corporation. Makers of the World's Finest Fly Reels.

You can get them at a decent price on eBay

I'm with Jonesy, it looks like a Hatch knockoff or something. China reels are fine for 1-5wt rods because the reel is mostly just a line holder. If you're targeting big fish you want a quality reel with powerful/sealed drag. I have an Orvis Hydros that isn't too much and easily controls large fish. here are my two "big" guns, both 9-10wt reels

Bill - here is a great resource/discussion...specifically note that Stripers are not discussed here - but as you know they pull like a mule, so I would definitely be looking at least at a 9wt rod.

Well, I'm a Penn person. All my saltwater gear is Penn. I see their Fly reels come up every now and then but sellers seem to want my left nut for them.
Thanks for the link Jonesy. It pretty much confirms what I had already gathered from all my recent reading on the matter. The thought of a 45 inch striper on the line with me in a kayak has me all mushy inside.
I'm going to the other house this afternoon to see if I can get the damn power boat ready to splash. Makes it a lot easier to get out to the Gooses and do some trolling! The fly rig is just a side project for now.

Bill,

If you can find a Teton Reel for sale, they are fantastic and won't break the bank. I have caught a shit load of fish on mine......from Bones in Turks and Caicos, to fat spottails on the coast of SC.


Anyway......I hit NC a couple of weeks ago and we did pretty well. Here are a few pictures and my buddy with a nice rainbow.

The girl caught her first fish on the dry, nothing more fun than seeing the face light up after a rise & hookset.

Nice smallmouth, Zack! Looks like you also got a keeper in her....

I was in Longboat Key with family last week and had some success with these guys, but my selfie skills are lacking....

Sight Fishing for Stripers on the flats. The fish that made the day was caught by my Dad in about 2 of water and measured out at 41. We spotted the fish, he casted to it from the bow, stripped the line in front of its nose and watched it open its mouth and inhale the fly. We released it and it kicked away strong with good energy left. Unfortuately no pics because we barely had it out of the water (just super quick to take the fly out and measure it). The only pic of the day is this from a friend who took it from a distance.
