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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Insane 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobbyB 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 have used this reel for about three seasons now on a 6wt rod. The reel is a good starter for someone just learning to fly fish.

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.
