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

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

Yes, you can switch from right to left hand retrieve. Instructions:

1. Remove spool
2. Remove clutch screws
3. Remove clutch assembly from spool assembly, flip and replace.
4. Reinsert screws to secure clutch assembly
5. Reattach spool. Retrieve and drag will now function in opposite direction. *
*Line and backing should be removed from spool prior to changing direction of retrieve.

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