Pflueger Automatic Fly Reel
Dang' thing broke on me......
I just ordered a new Pflueger automatic fly reel. My old one just broke on me! My original was given to me on my 13th birthday. Oh yea, I also had to change the tapered line on it--, once.
My grandson thinks he can fix the old reel, but the new one is gonna' be mine. I'll be 73 in October, '09.

Not satisfied at this time
Just attached the reel to my fly rod and added 25 yards of 6WF line. At this point in time I am disappointed in the strength of the reel when retreiving line with the auto trigger. My old reel I could set the hook on a fish by simpily hitting the trigger. Unless the spring gets stronger with use, it is not going to happen with this reel. I guess you gewt what you pay for.

I have used this Pflueger model for a number of years and it has worked flawlessly. I now have 2 kids who are old enough to throw a fly to the bluegills, and I need to order a second one. I have tried others in the past, including martin and they just don't hold up. If you want one this is the one to get. A little heavier than a regular real but a fair trade off as nothing is "free"

Love this Auto-Reel!
I have owned 5 of these Pflueger® Automatic Fly Reel's over the last 20 years. I still have 4 of them. Only one has failed (The main Spring broke!). It is so nice to be able to fish with one hand and handle the boat with the other. It is so nice in a fast & hot fishing situation, to be able to take in line fast & smooth, and be ready to get back out fast!
Love them! I think I will buy one more as a stand by.
