Fly Rod Reel Lock
Category: Fishing, fly fishing, rod, reel, marine, miscellaneous
Problem: When I want to store the rod with the line and fly attached to the end of the line, I wanted to keep the line taut. Even with the brake on, the line would still become loose.
Action: I tied a short line to the frame of the reel so it could be wrapped around the knob of the reel to keep the reel in place.
Result: It works great!
