Saltwater environments are harsh, and the fish are stronger than you will find in most freshwater scenarios. As a result, more will be demanded of your saltwater fly fishing tackle. Purchasing a saltwater fly reel with a sealed drag system is highly recommended to avoid corrosion and saltwater intrusion that can permanently damage the internal components. A solid drag system will allow you to pressure larger species, ensuring their safety and allowing you to land them successfully.
These are factors to consider when picking out a reel for saltwater fishing:
- Drag system
- Backing capacity
