Try checking out the white river classic ultralight reel. It has a click and pawl drag but palming the reel will provide more than enough pressure to handle the odd big fish

Thank you for your inquiry. Fly reels are reversible much in the same way that spinning reels are.

1. Remove the spool.
2. Remove the clutch screws.
3. Remove the clutch assembly from the spool assembly, flip over and replace.
4. Reinsert the screws to secure the clutch assembly.
5. Reattach the spool. Retrieve and drag will now function in the opposite direction.*

*Line and backing should be removed from the spool prior to changing direction of the retrieve.

Can use left handed if you can retrieve counterclockwise and feed line from the top of the reel rather than conventional bottom feed.

This fly reel does have a sealed drag. However, we recommend a quick rinse with fresh water (without disassembly) after each trip.
