Fly Fishing Reels. At the most basic level of fishing reels is the fly fishing reel. Most consist simply of a spool that turns one time for each crank of the handle. They do have many options beyond this level of simplicity. For example where larger fish will be caught a drag system may be necessary. Also "large arbor" reels are available that hold more line. Of all the things that are expensive in fly fishing this is one that does not necessarily need to be. Reels are matched to the fly line weights that will be used.
Fly fishing reels or centrepin reels are mainly used for fly fishing. They traditionally are simple in mechanical design; little has changed from the patented designed by Charles F. Orvis in 1874. A fly reel is normally used by pulling line off the reel with one hand while casting the rod with the other hand. To slow a fish the angler applies hand pressure to the rim of the spool ("known as palming the rim"). Early fly reels had no drag but a click/pawl mechanism to keep the reel from overrunning when line is pulled from the spool. In recent years improvements have been made for better reels and drag for larger fish. Saltwater fly reels designed for use in an ocean environment are normally larger in diameter for a larger line and backing for long runs of big game ocean fish.
