Admittedly, I get more excited about rods than I do reels. In fact, I think I geek out more over fly line than I do reels. But that doesn’t mean I relegate reels to the category of nippers, knot tools, and wading boot shoelaces.
Today I cover a handful of reel-centric topics. Whether you’ve got a wheelbarrow tire-sized saltwater reel or a tiny line-holding trout reel, it plays an important role in your fly fishing.
I discuss reel care, spooling know-how, troubleshooting, and a little bit about selecting the right gear. It is hardly exhaustive, but hopefully it will give you a few things to think about.
