Best Fishing Reel Review and Buying Guide

There are so many different fishing reels that hit the market every year, it’s impossible to keep track and be able to compare one reel to the next.  No matter what type of fishing you are into, be it saltwater, freshwater, or fly fishing, there is a reel out there that will suit your needs and I’m here to help you find it.

I, myself, am an avid angler and enjoy all the types of fishing noted above. It is a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation, and I am in the process of passing it down to my kids who seem to enjoy it as much as I do.  Our one true passion is surf fishing for big bull Red Drum on a barrier island, but we will not pass up the opportunity to hit up a local pond or jump in the boat and try our luck elsewhere.

Being this is now February, there isn’t much fishing to be done around this area, so the next best thing is to get out and visit all of the trade shows and outdoor expos that are going on. It’s the one time that you can have hands-on access to all the new fishing equipment and products that are being introduced that year. Or maybe you just want to get out of the house and tell a few fishing stories and share some camaraderie with your fellow fishing folks. However, if you’re not able to make it out to any of the shows, well that’s what we’re here for.
