How to Fly Fish : How to Setup the Reel on a Fly Rod


What am going to do here right quick is show
you how to basically set up your reel. First to give you the basics you would attach your
reel and pull your line, your loop your line, such as what I’m doing right now, you put
it through the eye lids. The purpose of this is if you release or drop your line int catches
it so it would not fall all the way through. So it is a nice little trick to feed your
line through the eye lids. So if you do drop it you would not have to go over it and do
it again. Which a lot of people do but this really saves you time when you are in the
river. We are putting our floating line. The floating line is the colored line in front
of me and attached to the floating line is the leader. Typically the leader is a nine
feet in length. We attach our fly to the end of the leader.
