Getting ready for a trip to the water? Choose the correct fishing reel for your outing. Whether you′re after a big steelhead or a scrappy trout learn about these different types of fishing reels and how they can work for you.
When you′re on a hot bite or a long-planned trip the worst thing that could happen is tackle failure. Losing a great catch due to something that could have been prevented is annoying. Avoid that problem by maintaining and regularly servicing your spinning reels and you′ll enjoy years of dependable use. Here are some steps to keep those reels in good working order.
The drag system of your reel applies friction to the spool. This helps as you cast and while you are attempting to bait a fish particularly larger species. Older models traditionally have a fixed drag that cannot be adjusted spring and pawl drag systems for fly fishing offer some adjustment and have a distinct clicking sound when line is pulled off the reel disc drag systems provide the smoothest type of drag. They are used in many modern fly reels adjustable disc drags allow anglers to make fine adjustments to the level of drag pressure.
After cleaning wipe the reel down with a rag soaked with a protective coating like Aluma Guard Reel magic or WD-40. A light coating of liquid furniture polish will also work. Be careful to avoid contact with the line or handle grips.
Clean parts with Simple Green. "Never use gasoline or similar products to remove dirt and grease from your reel's parts. It'll melt plastics. Use a biodegradable product such as Simple Green and a toothbrush that won't hurt the plastic or fiber parts of the reel."
