The Texas state record freshwater redfish on fly tackle was taken with a Dogwood Canyon™ Fly Reel (12 lbs./ Steve Guzman). Rugged all-metal construction, disc drag, and rimmed, counterbalanced spool rounds out a list of features common to much more expensive reels. Just because you're on a budget, it doesn't mean you have to fish with junk. Whether it's part of your first fly outfit, or a backup reel, the Dogwood Canyon™ will deliver years of smooth, trouble-free performance.

Buyer Beware I purchased this fly reel based on reviews that I had read and expected a great value for the money. Unfortunately, the item broke in less than a year and the warranty was denied because I could not produce the original store receipt. In the future, I will think twice about buying any White River merchandise with a supposed warranty. September 28, 2009
Great starter reel The dogwood canyon fly reel was part of my first fly-fishing outfit and it preformed very well when you consider the amount of abuse it was taking. The reel was submerged completely in water on more then one occasion and was left outside during numerous rainstorms. It preformed very well landing a few good-sized smallmouths. the reel finally broke when a part that controls the drag snapped; it was a small metal piece that makes the "click click" noise when line is pulled out of reel. I didn't really expect this reel to last that long anyway, it served its purpose as my first reel and I am now going to be upgrading to the hobbs creek fly reel. If you are looking to buy a starter, or a backup reel, this is the reel to buy. July 21, 2009
Tough Reel This reel is indestructible. Caught numerous peacock bass with it. Drug it across docks, tossed around by baggage handlers, sat in the sun all day, dropped in the water (twice). Good reel. April 28, 2009
Great For Beginners, and Tough Enough for a Backup A friend of mine began to give me lessons on fly fishing on a White River Classic Combo. After I got the feel for it, I was hooked. I traveled to my nearest BPS later that week and bought this reel and the matching Dogwood Canyon rod. After returning home, I began to fish our favorite stream and caught 21 Horneyhead chubs and 2 trout that first day! My spinning combo has aways been an attention getter, but this rod is every bit of the same quality I paid for as my favorite spinning combo. The drag works very well, and its very smooth overall. I've tried to baby it, but its nearly impossible all the time, and it's very tough. If you're on the fence of entering the new world of fly fishing, buy this! You won't regret it! I surely don't, even after a year later and after fishing with friends combos that cost 3 times as much, I honestly feel that this rod and reel combo is the same quality as the big boys! Thanks BPS!

Before I loaded the reel I switch it to left hand retrieve. The problem is that it free spools when I strip and creates a birds nest.

You will have to take the hole line off and than respool it all back on to change it from left to right! Found this out the hard way as you did.
