Re: Drag on a fly reel
They had line out of the reel, fish in fast water and just held the line tightly till it broke the fish off. It was the silliest thing I have seen in a while.If they had just given the fish line.
Dan it sounds as if these folks lacked line time, there lack of being able to control a catch with line, rod and personal control to work a catch. Is a drag important it's up to you, I think they give us more confidence, I've plenty of reels with them and with out, I don't think I need to stop a truck while casting for a 16" fish but do think I need to with a 40" stripper.
