Some really nice combos in this thread so far. I'm fond of the Steffen 763/4 paired with an old Ross Colorado 1.

However, the I also enjoy the Hardy Marquis 7 on Steffen's 805/6. The Marquis is a little out of focus here.

Good-looking stuff, e.d. -- that Colorado looks especially nice!

Nice!

By the way, some Beaver took on a big job with the tree your outfit rests on (second photo).

Yep - there are some serious beavers around that stream, and they've put some big trees in there!

One of the few 70p's not built by Chris (built by me) and one of the two CFO 123s left to me by my brother-in-law.

About 3' to the nearest cuttie...

Hey Randy,
As an aesthetically pleasing pairing, you can just put your extra CFO 123 with that 1 weight rod when you send it to me. ;)

Greetings!

I recently purchased a Steffen 805/6. Are there any other reels you like on this rod model? Lines?

Thanks in advance.
