||Disc Drag or Click and Pawl? There's
nothing wrong with click and pawl reels. However, disc drag's are
less expensive and more widely available.
||Rust Proof? Any good quality
reel should be rust-resistant or rust proof...or, in other words,
it's made out of something that won't rust away. This is where cheap
fly reels fail miserably.
||Fly Reels Have Moving Parts! So?
Fly reels are the only piece of fly fishing gear that has moving
parts. If you get a 10 buck fly reel, it's a gurantee that the parts
inside the reel are going to be quite junky. Perhaps this isn't a
big deal for the kids or when chasing small fish. But, do you want
the insides of your fly reel falling apart when a big trout starts
stripping out the line??
||Match The Weight. The weight
of your fly reel (example...a 4 wt. fly reel), should match...precisely....the
weight of the fly rod you use. And you should only use fly line weight
that is also the same as your fly reel. Remember this...fly reel
weight = fly rod weight = fly line weight. Read the buyers
guide for more information about this.
||Get a spare spool. Fly reels come and go.
And it's a guarantee that when the day arrives and you want to purchase
a spare reel for your fly reel, that a spare spool will no longer
be available. So, get a spare spool when you order your fly reel.
||For Trout Fishing...Get a Single
Action Fly Reel. Read the buyers
guide for more information about this topic.
But suffice it to say, for trout fishing (and most other types of
freshwater fly fishing), you want a single-action fly reel.
