Question on the position of the reel seat and handle on fly rods
Just a thought on why "Fly Rods" always have the reel seat behind the handle grip on fly rods....
What would happen if the reel seat was in front of the handle grip? How would that effect the action of the cast? How would that effect the balance of the fly rod?
This does seem to effect anglers using "Bait Cast", or "Spin Cast" fishing rods....!
I was thinking, would not having the reel seat in front of the handle grip, help to improve stripping of the line off the reel, improve the casting distance?
Just a thought!
