You shouldn't have to take out a loan just to get into fly fishing. Besides, that seen on TV margarita maker you're three out of seven easy payments into has your assets tied up at the moment, but that doesn't mean you need to put your desire to fly fish on hold. The Ross Flystart Fly Reel comes at a price that's less than what you pump into your rig every week, and it is made with a dependable disc drag system and solid alloy frame and spool, so you can rest assured that it won't break the third time you take it out on the river. Inside the Flystart is a self lubricating drag system, so you won't have to deal with maintenance, and the oil impregnated stainless steel spindle offers a smooth feel once a fish starts to pull line from the reel. The quick release spool system allows you to quickly put different lines on the reel, and the reel can be switched between left and right handed retrieve, so all you left handed anglers need not look elsewhere for an affordable and durable entry level reel.
