I've seen that method! Plan to build a few more so I'll look thru the wood pile and see what I have to use.

Just finished up mine the other night. it takes 20 or so feet of WF2 line to begin to load. Definitely more of a 3wt, but I was happy with it.

Default Bend It

Jack-It takes 30 feet of line plus leader to offer the correct bend with easy power application. This is why for small stream rods it is best fished with one line weight heavier. This way 20 feet feels correct. We don't make many 30 foot plus leader casts on the little blue lines.

Looks like a Pflueger Progress, a classy reel from days gone by. I've got quite the soft spot for those old skeletons. I have amassed a small collection of them over the years.

Here's another pflueger progress, a 60 yd model.

Yup, it's a Pflueger Progress. Smaller size, nickel plated spool. Makes for a little bit of a butt heavy setup, but it looks the part, save for my orange backing!
