Default Re: Reel Drag Type Question

Fly reel drags should be set to where the spool will slip before the tippet breaks. Watch pro bassers on TV. You will see them pull drag off the reel making sure it won't line break. As far as 2 lb. fish, I've caught many 22 inch browns on a 3 weight and a bar stock orvis. Now, i use a battenkill II and just bought an Okuma magnitude off a gentleman here.both on 5 weight rods) Long story short, Frank is right. Oh btw, a 2 lb. trout or any fish will eat a click and pawl reel alive. Unless you're really good at palming
