Default Fly Reels

Protecting Fly Reel Drag Systems Always back off the drag on reels after fishing, especially those that use compressible materials like cork. Cork drags perform best when lubricated on an annual or semi-annual basis. Always use the manufacturer's suggested lubricant.
Buying a Fly Reel When buying a fly reel, consider four main features: its weight, its drag system, the diameter of its spool, and its materials and finish. In general, you want as light a reel as you can buy with the proper drag system. Big, beefy drags often add considerable weight to a fly reel but provide low start-up inertia and consistent pressure at higher drag settings. The diameter — often referred to as the "arbor" — and width of the fly reel spool determine how much line and backing the reel holds and how quickly line can be retrieved.
