Fly Reels : A Buyers Guide to Fly Reels
Gallatin River in Montana
Fly reels do more than
just hold line. Repeat - fly fishing reels do more than just hold
line. If there is anything you must remember when hunting around
for a fly reel to attach to your fly rod, always remember that a
fly reel does much more than hold the fly line.
OK. Enough said. If
you're shopping around for a fly reel, chances are you'll be
to save a few bucks by getting a cheap fly reel - especially if
you just bought a very expensive fly rod. This, not surprisingly,
is something you really want to avoid. Having a high quality
fly rod may be great for casting, line control and
a sizeable fish, the importance of the fly rod becomes vastly overshadowed
by the quality of the fly reel that you have attached to it.
The reason is because it is the fly fishing reel that is responsible
for letting out the fly line in a smooth, tangle free manner.

If you plan on doing

a good quality fly fishing reel is vital! A good quality fly reel
will last a very long time and won't fail when you least want it
to - like when a trophy trout is on the other end of the fly line.
So, the moral of the story is this - save yourself from the frustration
of lost trophy fish and needless aggravation by getting a good quality
fly reel when you get a good fly rod. A good quality fly reel will
pay for itself many times over in the forms of fish in the net at
the end of the day.
