This is embarrassing :oops:

Having been fishing for a few months, I was just beginning to think I was getting the hang of things.

Today I was reminded just what a beginner I am.

I bought a new cheap rod & reel - just to have for when mates come round & want to fish too.

Thing is - I got a rear drag okuma reel - I can't figure out how to get the spool off. I know it must be simple but I've been trying solidly for an hour.

Any ideas anyone? It's a Okuma cycloid cdr 50 if that helps. My other reel is front drag & I've no problems taking the spool off it.

Thanks!!

I'm no expert but most of the rear drag reels i have come across you push a button in the centre of the spool and they pull off
