    I too, have owned Bauer skates........They were spirits, and I bought them when I was 12 or 13...I wore them out and bought a set of Nike skates.....used them once in fifteen years......I also have a Bauer M(something) it's a 5 weight...I used it A LOT, but now I have become a snob an fish with Hardy Perfect, and St George...the click is the drug.......as two have said before, trout around these parts don't need drag, and the runs with a click and pawl are pretty awesome if you know what to do, don't freak out and snap your tippet.....

    All this talk of hockey skates makes me want to ice fish. Come on winter!

    Maybe we can get DC to organize a pond hockey league for the NEFFers. No lifting, but checking is optional.

    Re: New reel recommendation

    FYI I end up getting Galvan and Mirage. Both are fine reels but I wouldn't trade my Galvan for any other.

    Re: New reel recommendation

    I'm looking for a reel for a 7 wt switch rod I'm getting I have a limited budget and think I have it narrowed down to either an orvis hydros, a Lamson guru HD (with a full frame) or a galvan rush light which supposedly is the same reel as the torque just not as sexy. I've heard some people talk bad about Lamson but I'm also concerned they may be too light to balance an 11' rod even oversized. Any experiences/recommendations?

    I have a Guru 3.5 on a Beulah 7/8wt switch and it's perfectly balanced with that combo.
