    So my girlfriend was given her dads Sage 4wt rod for Christmas. She asked me if she could have a pink reel for it. Naturally I thought… well I don't know, i have never looked for a pink reel… I am on the search for a pink reel. Anybody know of anybody that makes a good reel coming in the color pink?

    Allen had some limited edition pink ATS reels. Thought someone had some for sale recently.

    I love Abel reels and they can be had in pink. The Abel Creek or Trout series are great reels and aren't very expensive.

    The Allen ats pink is what I think we are going to go with. A forum member is selling one so it works out. Any body have any info on these reels?

    I have a couple. Best $100 reel that can be had IMO. I slipped on a rock and fell forward with rod/reel in hand and THREW it down in order to catch myself with my hands. Hit the reel square on a rock. I mean, I couldn't have thrown it harder if I was trying to break it intentionally. Thought to myself during the slow-mo, "oh well, there goes that reel. At least it was cheap..." Nope. Light scratch, that's it. Tough little bastard.

    He can't spell worth a damn. He's old and cranky.

    Apparently I can't either.

    Not very good at fishing either, Jim.

    But I can flay the water to a froth in a heart beat.
