Okuma is a good choice. Before, I used to fly fish with the reel by Wright & McGill, then I switched to Okuma, and I like it more, than the one by Wright & McGill. It is smoother, than the one I had, and it works way better, as for me.... Though, the W&McGill was from the starter kit, so I believe they are just in different budgets. Here's the Okuma I've got. It is not the most top-of-the-line one.
