Default What type of reels do you use?

There has been some discussion here about reel types so lets see the poll results. This is a multiple choice poll so click on ALL the types of reels you use. I take 8 rigs on my boat. 4 bait cast, 2 spinning, and 2 fly cast.

If you would like to learn to fly cast I have the perfect instructional DVD for you. It's called "Basic Fly Casting" with Doug Swisher from Scientific Anglers. You can order it from the Bass Pro Shops online catalog. This DVD makes fly casting easy to understand and execute. You'll really enjoy learning and then catching with a fly rod.

With the number of people I see fishing with spin cast gear I'm rather surprised at the low count for spin cast on the poll results. I don't much care for them myself but I do see a lot of folks (mostly shore fishing) using them when I go fishing. Just an observation.

Hi. Great to find a site like this!
I use an old Cardinal 3. Love it! Some day I hope to learn to fly fish.

Welcome to O-F! I've fly fished since I was a teenager! Nothing puts you in more personal contact with your quarry than fishing with a fly- especially one you make yourself! Want to start practicing and have some fun rght now? Check out this thread: http://outdoor-fishing.com/showthread.php?t=287 Lot's more posts under Fly Fishing and Fly Tying! Enjoy. Best--- JoeW

PS: "old Cardinal 3", are you talking about the old cream/green colored ones? There are many serious fishermen that will only use those old-timers and will pay $50-100 for a used one! Strong, simple, reliable!

Default Cardinal 3

No. Mine is the black graphite one. Think it was the next one in line after the cream and green one. There is a place called Reel Doctor that has two for sale I believe. Beautiful but much larger than mine.

I am a bass fisherman mainly but on my boat I have one heavy bait casting reel for my big swim baits, one med bait casting reel for most of my bass lures, five spinning reels from med to super light for more lures and a finesse worm, and one fly rod for the shockers or bait fish. I like to be ready for what ever is biting.
