Hello,

I just been given a hardy sovereign rod and reel... it's years since I fly fished but im keen to get back kn to it.

It's almost embarrassing as I don't even know how to release the spool from this reel yo get some line on it... anybody able to help?

Many thanks.

Cracking reel to be given. On the handle side there is I think what looks like a small lever, try either pushing in and removing spool or pushing the lever either up or down to release. Whichever way pulling the spool off at the same time as moving the lever.

Why do you want to remove the spool just for loading line, wind it straight on whilst on the reel. Much easier.

When you take the spool off run a little grease on the spindle before putting the spool back on. Best to spool the backing on then the line while the spool is still on the reel. Check Utube and they will show you lots of tips for starting up again.

One thing that annoys me is people that ask for help and / advice but when given have not got the common courtesy to acknowledge your time in trying to help them.

Apologies, I read your post and I looked at the reel again. The little lever allowed me to release the spool so many thanks for your help.
