Solid performer in certain applications
I currently have two of these and am generally impressed by how they perform in two specific applications.
I use one on a 3wt when summer fishing for panfish and small mouth bass in the small streams of the Ga. piedmont. I also have one on a 6wt that I use for trout on the brushy public streams of N Ga.
Most fish in both these waters rarely exceed 3 lbs and I can count on two hands the number of fish that have pulled enough line to get to the backing.
If you rarely need the drag and your reel serves mostly as a fly line storage unit, this is the reel for you. Nice balance, smooth take up, functional drag, and easy to clean.
I feel like I saved enough money by purchasing this reel over a top-of-the-line light wt reel to upgrade on the reels I use to target bigger fish; instances where you need to be able to count on a smooth drag and take-up.
If you find yourself fighting most fish on the backing, spend the money on a quality reel. If not, save some cash and apply what you save to upgrade on your set-ups for bigger fish.

For the average fisherman
An excellent choice for the average angler. This reel has both good looks and durability. It has great feel and is very smooth. I have used it on several trips without the first problem thus far. A great buy for the recreational fly fisherman.

Great beginner fly reel
My wife bought this reel as a gift for me. I'm new to flyfishing and this has been the perfect starter reel. Easy to learn on and very forgiving. Would recommend to anyone just getting into the sport or to seasoned pros looking for a good backup reel.

I bought the white river dc56 combo and it works great.
I had to take the reel apart because the line got stuck underneath, when I took the cap off the top with the two screws a small v shaped piece of metal was loose. It is longer on one side than the other, I assume this holds the spool on. I am not sure there is also a flat curved piece of metal that sits on a raised circle.
This should be listed in the Owner's Manual. If you need one please contact customer service via email: https://basspro.custhelp.com/app/as... or take the reel into one of the Retail Stores and the person at the Fly Fishing Department will help you fix the problem.
if you take the reel of of the body and it looks like somthing is brocken or out of place you muct take the reel in for repair. |I have had this happen to me before and in the end i had to buy a new reel because the part was my problem for breaking it.
