The fly reel with its spool and stripping line... Simplistic construction... Smooth uninterrupted drag prepared for the long run of that fish not yet caught... Offering the proper weight to cast the fly... As the angler whisks the perfectly chosen caddis in the air... Setting the load at the rod tip... Dropping the line smoothly onto the water... The fly lands with a beautiful presentation... Awaiting the chance to set the hook... The big splash with a quick fin view... More often than not just to "Catch & Release".
