Re: Need extra spool?
I do have a few extra spools for a couple of our reels, but I have more duplicate reels than extra spools. Thatís a function of extensive travel ( a spare spool doesnít have much use, if the reel its used on fails while on the road ) and needing more than one rod of a specific line weight rigged and at the ready while fishing. So for us, duplicate reels make more sense.
One point Iíll add as an old retailer of fly gear. If the reel you own is from a company that is known for changing models every few years or if the model you have is getting long in the tooth. You might consider buying a spare spool sooner, rather than later, if you think that you really might need one down the road. Sometimes finding extra spools for a discontinued reel model can be a challenge. Especially so, if the brand & model were not commonly found in the inventory of fly shops.
