Reel Adjustment Tricks That Actually Make A Difference!

Wonder why you can't skip, flip, or make long casts? Learn how good fishermen are actually adjusting their reels. Matt explains the "traditional" method of reel adjustment but follows it up with real tips on how he tunes his reels so he can cast farther and fish cover more effectively. 

Why do the pros cast so effectively? Why can they skip and flip into tight spots but when you try you get backlash after backlash? Some of it is time on the water but some of it is reel adjustment. If you loosen everything up and learn to control the spool with your thumb you will become a much more effective fisherman.
