Fly Fishing Reels
Most fly fisherman take a special pride in their sport. So it’s no surprise that selecting the right fly fishing reel is of the utmost importance. While freshwater fishing rods can sometimes come with the reel attached as a combo, fly fishing rods are more likely to come separated from the reel and so fisherman are careful to create their own custom fly rod and reel combinations.
A fly fishing reel is arguably the most important part of a fly fisherman’s equipment. One important consideration is the weight of the reel. Not only the physical weight of the reel, which can have an effect on the fisherman’s action, but also how the weight of the reel matches the weight of the rod and fishing line. If you’re giving a fly reel as a gift, see what type of fishing line is being used and the size of the fly fishing rod. Matching the reel to these two aspects will help.
We’ve got a variety of lightweight reels to use for trout fishing. It’s made to convert between right and left handed and features a quick release spool for the fisherman that carries multiple spools. While other fly fishing reels above are an inexpensive option for the beginning fly fisherman they are still good quality and won’t fail you at crucial moments, like when you’ve hooked a fish.
