    Fly Reels for Light Line Nymphing

    Having invested in another 2 flylines I'm looking to buy a reel or two for light line nymphing work on 10' #3 & #4 rods. I don't want anything expensive just a nice reel to balance with these rods. Anyone any ideas.

    Can you define not expensive? Under $100? Light and inexpensive don't normally go together. But with a 10ft rod, you will not need a super light reel. Redington is ok for the money. I would look for something on clearance. You can get the older style Galvan Rush or Open Back on EBay for $150 or so if you look for it.

    The Konic would be a great choice too. The drag is very good and has proved to be durable for me.

    For a ten foot three and four weight you would be hard pressed to find a better reel than the Nautilus FWX in a 5/6 for that rod size. It's made from a single piece of machined aluminum and is not die cast like other lesser priced alternatives. Get a good reel with a great drag you never know when you'll need it.
