Please, say it isn't so
I've heard that Orvis is discontinuing it's famed CFO series of reels. I've seen some being dumped by fly shops at less-than-ebay prices. What a shame. I've always been of the opinion that the CFO is the epitome of a trout reel. Nice look, smooth as silk, simple in design, and reliable. There has been some talk of a replacement. I dunno - it seems that some things do not need replacing. Maybe Orvis customers can save the tradtional CFO as they did the Superfine Series (back by popular demand, sort of thing).
