When fishing you need a functional fly reel to balance your outfit. Fly fishing reels are constructed in two ways: pre-cast and machined. Pre-cast fly reels are made from liquid metal poured into a mould. These reels are typically heavier and slightly less durable than their machined counterparts, but they can also be had at a more reasonable price point. The reliable performance and affordable price of pre-cast fly reel makes them a great choice if you’re looking to get started in fly fishing.
Machined fly fishing reels are milled out of a solid block of metal. This process leads to a lighter and stronger fly reel. Machined fly fishing reels will last a lifetime and offer the best performance over time. Not surprisingly, they are also more expensive than pre-cast fishing reels.
Another thing to consider is the finish on the Fly fishing reel. An anodized finish will stand up to salt water, which is very corrosive, and this is essential if you’re planning on fishing in the ocean. We offer a selection of fishing reels with a great drag system at various cost points to enhance your fly fishing experience.
Don't forget always wash your fishing reels after fly fishing, especially after saltwater use.
