Stolen Reels!

On a night in May 2010 there was a series of burglaries to properties in the Moretonhampstead area of Dartmoor, Devon.

In one of the burglaries a quantity of Fly Fishing equipment was stolen including 3 Hardy Perfect Reels and 2 Stan Bogdan Reels, 1x 4’’ and 1x 3.5’’. It is estimated there are less than a hundred Bogdan reels in the country.

Look out for these being offered for sale on eBay or elsewhere and if you see them, you are asked please to contact Devon and Cornwall Police 08452 777444 Quoting JC/10/435.

Let's hope we can get the victim of this burglary his fishing tackle back!


Still dreaming of the one that got away? You may be using the wrong reel!

The 3 types of Fly Fishing Reels and what they can do for you!

There are many anglers who feel that fly fishing is as much an art form as it is a skill. To be successful one needs extreme patience, perseverance and the commitment to truly master their techniques. However, by using the wrong reel, even the most relaxed and focused angler can become frustrated and head for shore.

Here are the three main types of reel and the advantages and disadvantages of each;

Single Action Reel

When it comes to a fishing reel there is definitely something to be said for reliability and durability. This is the main reason why single action fly reels are the most common. The term single action refers to the 1:1 retrieve ratio, put simply, one turn of the reel equals one turn of the spool. Many fly fishermen will also choose single action fly fishing reels for their simplicity. These reels are not complex and consist of only the bare minimum when it comes to parts. Replacing spools, cleaning and maneuverability is all extremely easy when using a single action reel. For those who are new to fly fishing and want to learn the skill without having to worry about their reel, this is an ideal choice.

Multiplying Reels

Contrary to single action fly reels, multiplying reels offer a retrieve ratio of greater than 1:1. Achieving a higher ratio and providing an angler a fast retrieval means more parts, and unfortunately more mishaps. However, due to the fact that these reels are extremely quick when bringing in a line, many experienced fly fishermen prefer them over their single action counterparts. Though these types of fly reels can be more difficult to handle, their speed makes them a great choice when fishing for larger more aggressive fish. When fighting with the big one bringing in excess line could make the difference between a trophy sized catch or a boatload of disappointment.

Automatic Reels

There are many situations in life where the idea of “automatic” implies convenience and efficiency. However, fly fishing is not one of them. Although automatic fly fishing reels are available they are not popular and are considered by many serious anglers to be more trouble then they are worth. Unlike single and multiple fly reels, automatic reels retrieve the line using a trigger system and the angler has no control over retrieval speed. They also consist of many small parts and are not as durable as other reels. Even essential maintenance such as changing spools is a long and frustrating process.
