Cheers to the new year and here’s to making this year one of the best ever. While COVID continues to dominate the airwaves and life’s still undoubtedly strange, it’s important now more than ever that we embrace the opportunities to celebrate the outdoors and get out on the water.
As fly fishing has expanded from the pursuit of traditional cold water and flats fishing to all kinds of different species, the need for more robust fishing tools is at an all-time high. Instead of dangling a clogged-up lanyard with everything (nippers, forceps, and knot tightener) hanging at your hands, many anglers are adopting the single tool that does most of the heavy lifting— fly fishing pliers.
Fly fishing reels are an essential part of your fishing equipment. At Cheeky Fishing we have developed a number of different fly reels to give you the best experience when on the water. When you are preparing to buy fly reels, we want to help you select the correct reel for your angling needs. Below you will find a description of what makes up a great reel which can be useful for selecting the right reel.
