Vintage Fenwick Rod need a reel
« on: March 13, 2016, 04:37:02 PM »
My wife brought me home a vintage Fenwick 6 1/2 foot rod from her antique store. I am looking for a good reel to go with it. I was looking at the Phfleuger President 6930? What do you think? I fish the river around Wilkes-Barre from the bank.

I have the president size 25 on my ultralight set up for about seven years now. Never been cleaned or lubed and it's still as smooth as day one.

No... LOL most of my reels are vintage... I have an old Penn 716 (green) but thats an ultralite. Also an old Mitchell but wanted something more cutting edge to go with this rod. My other rod is a St Croix mojo bass. This is my second or backup rod.
