With things a bit quiet on the farm at the moment and with all this sunny spring like weather happening it was time to take 1/2 a day off work. So, what does a fish farmer do for recreation? Go fishing of course!

Nice way to spend a $unday, Im on my way in to work, apparently they need me cause it's busy.
Wish all the slow cars would get out of the fast lane.

The good thing about science is that you don't have to believe in it for it to be right.

I'm planning on buying a fly rig.

I've had a bit of a go on borrowed gear to the point where I can cast the to point where the fly generally ends up further away from than it started, but given the way people seem to use a fly reel (sometimes it seems fly reels are just for line storage when I watch people fly fishing on youtube), is there any reason I need to spend money on a decent one?

Can you recommend a low cost rig to get me started?

For small streams...2/3wt outfits and small fish the reel is just a convenient place to keep the line and you can use a cheap one but for bigger rigs like 5/6wt or 9wt you need good drag for fighting the fish on the reel.
