La Vergne Duclos Fishing Reels April 02, 2018 23:22:25
Fly fishing reels are a more basic designed reel with few moving parts. They can be found with an open or closed spool design. Having an open spool will allow the line to dry much quicker and as a result will weigh noticeably less. Fly reels come in a standard size and large arbor designs. The larger arbor designed reels tend to pull the line in faster and could come in handy on larger bodies of water. These reels also may have interchangeable spools and have the capability of moving the handle from one side to the other. The drag system is an important factor and can have a cork disk or click design. Enclosed drags normally last longer. You also want to make sure the drag is easily adjusted.
Weight will be an important consideration in any reel you choose. The obvious reasons are comfort and fatigue. Just think of fishing reels as a bowling ball. There is a perfect size and weight for all of us. If you are trying to buy a reel online it may be a good idea to go to a retail fishing store to get an idea of how heavy a reel you should purchase. Spinning reels are generally weighted in ounces.
