Abu Garcia Orra Power Finesse Spinning Reel
I’ve actually been thinking a lot lately about the way I finesse fish. I work with a lot of professional anglers—who are much better fishermen than me, I might add—and a large majority of them prefer using braided line with a fluorocarbon leader. But to be totally honest, it’s been a pain in my behind lately. Whenever I’m guiding folks, I find myself constantly re-tying leaders when they get too short and the braided line doesn’t provide much forgiveness to inexperienced anglers. I understand it’s part of the gig, but I’ve always felt like there has to be an easier way.
As a result of my frustration, I have been experimenting with using fluorocarbon main line and several of my spinning reels just aren’t cut-out for it. For the past few months, however, I’ve been testing the Abu Garcia Orra Power Finesse Spinning Reel and it has changed my view regarding the compatability of spinning reels and fluorocarbon line.
