A Perfect Match

This past weekend a lot of time (according to Mrs. Manifesto way to much time) was spent gathering up various pieces of fly fishing gear and making sure it was all ready for the trip to Michigan.

This involved loading up fly boxes, picking out which glass fly rods are going, matching those fly rods with fly reels, and mapping out everything that still needs to be packed.

One of the things on the list was to load the Phoenix Classics Silk Fly Line on The Spey Company Single Spey Trout Reel.

I was a little worried that the entire four weight double taper would have a hard time fitting onto the the Single Spey three inch spool but it was actually no problem at all.

I am very excited to fish the Graywolf Rods fiberglass build on some classic and hidden away brook trout water while up in Michigan and using a silk fly line on this clicker fly reel will certainly add to the experience..
