Leland Reel Company B.C. Steelhead

The Leland Reel Company Vintage Series is ever closing to being released and this is a close to final production photograph of the large two hander worthy British Columbia Steelhead model.

"This is a photo of our pre-production British Columbia Steelhead reel.  Although our reels look old-school, they are up to snuff in manufacturing, materials, and technology.  Fully machined, Teflon anodized with brass components, these reels will perform for many years to come.

It comes with two handles.  However, one handle can be removed and a brass counterbalance weight (supplied with reel) can take its place.  This has an adjustable click and pawl reel and sized for standard two hand rods"

This reel looks pretty sharp to me and I really like the two handles if nothing else but for aesthetic reasons.  
This fly reel should fall somewhere in the mid $300 mark as far as pricing goes.
Remember that if you enter the Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters website and make a purchase via their advertisement badge on the sidebar of T.F.M. that it will help me continue the process of becoming a fly fishing "hundredaire".
