I bought this pole with the hope of being able to learn how to fly fish over all my experience has been good with the pole the only thing is I have a terrible catch in my drag so when I go to pull fly line out it’s easy at first then it’s hard then is easy I don’t know what could be causing this other then the problem with the drag it has been a decent combo set
Davey - if you have a problem you could always contact us at 585-867-3474 or email us at email@example.com. We could replace the reel if you would like. There are several things that could cause this. Most are easily fixed and have nothing to do with the quality of the reel.
