Buying a new fly fishing reel is not as easy as it sounds, you have to consider a few basic but essential issues before parting with your money. So before taking any action, consider some of the following points. 1 - What species of fish are you going after? is it trout, salmon, pike or even sea fish for instance bass? 2 - The reel is primarily a line carrier, its function is to smoothly retrieve line, react to striking and playing the fish. If fishing for trout then you will use a reel that can take either floating or sinking line with backing. The reels used for salmon are generally larger, but still must be smooth and quick to respond. Sea fishing fly reels need to be more durable, resistant to corrosion and easily stripped down to clean.
