    Work on fly reel

    Where is a good place to get my old Martin reel restrung & spruced up a bit? Orvis, Sportsman's Finest? My grandpa willed me his old reel (it's probably from the 50's) & I want to get back into fly fishing. We used to go every summer to CO to fish. Now I want to get some poppin bug action going around here.
    thanks

    While I've heard mixed reviews about the gun side of Sportsman's Finest, I've only had really helpful, pleasant experiences when dealing with the guys on the fly side. My buddy just got into fly fishing and they strung his reel up and tied a braided loop into his line at no charge, and even showed him a few knots for good measure. I just sent my wife in there to buy some tippet and a couple bead head wooly buggers (the guads are tearing those up right now!), and they got her out of the store for less than $10.

    TL;DR, go to Sportsman's Finest, they know their shit and they're nice folks.
