Orvis - CFO V Fly Reel - Screwback
For sale here is an Orvis CFO V "Screwback" fly reel in excellent used condition. Stan Bogdan created the original prototype for this reel and they were first offered for sale in the 1971 Orvis catalog. This is a 1970's reel, featuring 3-hole aluminum reel foot, adjustable drag and nickel silver line guard. Can be fished LHW or RHW. The gray enamel finish shows some wear/finish loss, but the reel is mechanically perfect. Weight is 4.30oz. 3 7/16" diameter, the stated capacity is for a WF10 + 150yds, but I suspect the true capacity is slightly less (I fish a 6 or 7wt on mine). A nice example of the largest "screwback" CFO.
