5 thoughts on “can you use a fly fishing reel on a normal stream fishing pole?

  1. You could fish with a tree branch like huck finn , but you may not catch anything. the answer is more no than yes

  2. you can try it but a fly fishing reel has sooooo much drag and stuff that for one it might be hard and it might be easy to cast…two it will take forever to land a fish…3 what line would you be using?

  3. if you mean a spinning rod, yes. but you might have trouble deciding which weight fly line to use. to be safe, try a 6 to 8 weight. in a weight forward.

  4. The reel may be automatic or single action, but in any event, it should be larger enough to hold the usual 30 yards of fishing line without crowding it on the reel spool.

    The reel should weigh from 1 ¼ to 1 ½ as much as the bare rod. The reel itself is of no specific use in casting or fishing except as a storage place for the line.
