  1. Default Re: Anti Reverse Fly Reels?

    Yesterday I was at my local tackle dealer and looked at fly reels. I saw a Vision cdc something (forgot it's name) and it turned out to be a anti reverse reel. I can honestly say that I won't be getting one. It feels so unnatural that the handle don't spin backwards or can't turn backwards. It's comparable to spin fishing.

    Kim, for 'smaller' fish (pick a number) under 10/12 pounds AR's bring little to the Party. That said (I've got two) when you toss King Salmon river fishing into the mix

    A really large fish in moving water can really beat up your fingers trying to grab that little handle All you can hope for is a good drag will slow him down so you can get your fingers on that spinning knob.

    Yup
