Fly fishing reel types
Differences Among Fly Fishing Reel Types
Sport fishermen and anglers nowadays can select from three fly fishing reel types according to mechanism. These are the single-action, multiplying, and automatic fly reels.
Of the three, the single-action type is the simplest. The name is derived from what is known as the "retrieve ratio" - a full turn of the handle will result in a complete turn of the spool. Thus it is easier to estimate or gauge the response of this reel when the reel is turned. Compared to the other two, the single-action fly reel has the least amount of moving parts inside it, which contributes significantly to its durability and reliability. Consequently, this type of reel is by far the most popular.
The second type is the multiplying fly reel. As its name suggests, this type has a retrieve ratio that is greater than 1 to 1, meaning that a full turn of the handle will bring about two or more turns of the spool, reeling a fishing line in faster than a single-action reel can manage. As can be expected, while certainly convenient, this sort of reel has been described as less reliable than the single-action type, and is less popular as a result. But it can be said that the multiplying fly reel strikes the best balance compared to the other two.
The last kind of fly fishing reel is the automatic fly reel. This drops the reel handle completely and instead makes use of a mechanism that reels the fishing line in very quickly. However, many anglers have found this sort of reel boxy and cumbersome, and it has been said that the large number of moving parts makes it less reliable. However, it can't be beat for convenience.
