Now there's this notion out there that your fly fishing reel needs to be this ultra-light, fully machined, sealed-drag wonder, or you'll get laughed off the water by everyone else out there. This is false. In fact, you may only need a simple line-holder of a reel in order to catch fish. That said, higher-quality reels will not handicap your progress as a fly fisherman. When you need to fish tiny dries on fine tippet, you need a reel with a superb drag to protect that tippet, or you won't be landing any fish, period. So whatever your need truly is in a fly fishing reel, we have a solution for you.
