Searching For a Quick Release Fly Reel
I am in the process of replacing the equipment I lost on a recent canoe fishing trip I made to Bear Creek. To say the least the trip was a nightmare. I lost my Battenkill III reel and am in the process of trying to find a reel I can use with a
9 ft. rod. I don’t want to get another Battenkill because this reel doesn’t have the quick release feature that I am looking for. When I say quick release I am talking about touch spending the rim of the reel to take up large amounts of line in seconds which is very useful when fighting a large fish. I know Gloomis Venture has this reel but again I am looking for a different design other than what the Gloomis has. Have anyone out there use this type fly reel.
