People get obsessed with spending big money on reels.
The truth is there is no need to.
9 times out of 10 you will be able to play the fish by hand and on the rare occasion you hook into something bigger and need to follow a fish the drag on this reel is more than capable of playing any fish the UK Stillwater scene can throw at you. This must be the best value reel on the market today supplied with 4 spools this is more than capable of holding all the lines you need for a day’s fishing.
The spool changing system with this reel is what appeals to me most.
You will see that the modern-day fly reels tend to be small metal releases and tightly stuck cassettes.
This makes changing spools in cold weather not only difficult but also uncomfortable.
With the Airflo Classic Cassette reel, simply place your palm against the locking ring and twist, this adaptation makes it perfect for a quick spool change even on a cold winters morning.
