This week’s Throwback Thursday post is the Ross Reel No. 2.

The Ross Reel No 2 |

I bought this reel from a friend a few years ago. It was attached to a Winston – Tom Morgan Favorite 8 foot 4 weight fly rod.

I don’t fish it often, but did pull it out when I recently fished Soda Butte Creek in Yellowstone National Park. It is a sweet rod and I like the vintage fly reel that’s now around 35 years old.

The following quote is from the Ross Reels USA website:

“The Original ‘’R’’ Reel Series was produced in both Etna, California and Montrose, Colorado throughout the 1980’s. The ‘’R’’ Series came in four sizes; #1, #2, #3, #3.5 for line weights 3 thru 10.”

The earliest models are marked as made in Etna, CA, so I’m guessing this fly reel was produced in Montrose.

Enjoy…go fish, stay safe!
