A great tip with fishing reels, purchase two reels and two rods so you have back-ups and spare parts. If anything should happen to your rod or reel, you have another and your fishing will remain consistent. Not having that spare rod or reel can spell disaster on a fishing trip. Many an angler wished they had a back-up when the unexpected happens.
