No Joke, this is one great little fly reel. Nothing fancy here, just a
great working, long lasting fly reel. It's the right size for any five
or six weight fly line/rod. No, it's not machined and anodized. It's
molded and painted...but so what. It still works hard like a mule and
can take all the bumps an angler can throw at it. It's got an adjustable
disc-drag system that protects light tippet, yet can still slow down a
bigger fish. This fly reel is perfect for the beginner or makes for a
great back-up fly reel. If you're a lake angler and you've got a lot of
fly lines, don't spend extra money on a bunch of spools, get this reel
(or several) and get organized.
Fly Line is perfect for all purpose trout fishing. It's a Weight
Forward design for easy casting and makes shooting line a breeze. Dual
tone color aids increases distance control with a moss green tip for a
stealth presentation. The line is looped at both ends for easy changing
of lines or leaders.
