I started out using a Phlueger reel and a metal fly rod. My early fly fishing was off of the CA coast in the San Bernadino Mountains. Many years later I moved to Northern Utah and fished almost daily with hand wrapped fiberglass rods and Phlueger reels.
Over the years I have upgraded my fly rods as well as my shotguns.
I now live in Wy and fish the Big Horn River and many of its tributaries with an annual trip to the Bahamas for "dem bones".
Below from top to bottom rods in 9wt., 8wt, 6 wt., and 4wt. The 4wt sports a Pflueger reel.
