#3 and #5 magnetic fly reels show up on eBay occasionally, but you've gotta be in the right place at the right time, and be prepared to spend some $$ to get 'em.

If you are interested, I just listed a #3 on eBay with box, paper and extra spool. I have never used it and probably never will and need to downsize my collection (according to my wife!).

I've heard that wives often are of that opinion.  No first-hand experience.
