Dudley Won Another Auction On Ebay ...
for a USA made Martin fly reel model 63. It is NOS and comes in the original box with the paperwork. It is just like the reel that Dudley learned to fly fish with and used for many years. It came in a Martin Fly Fishing Combo with an eight foot yellow Martin fiberglass fly rod with a package of floating fly line. If Dudley remembers correctly he got the outfit at the Green Stamp store. Dudley has a lot of great memories fishing with that fly rod and reel up on the Illinois River up in Northeastern Oklahoma up near Tahlequah. Dudley's family used to own a log cabin up on a high bluff overlooking the river. Dudley caught a bunch of sunfish and largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing out of an old Grumman square stern aluminum canoe. Those were the days! Now if Dudley could just find a NOS yellow Martin fly rod. Now that would be something to get excited about.
