This ingenious little device makes it possible for a spin
fishing angler to attach a spinning reel to a fly rod.
Why on earth would they want to do that? To fly fish easily and expertly using
a spinning reel and our STATECH SPINFLYTM FISHING LINE on a long,
willowy, fly rod. A Statech Spinfly Line can be used by a spin fishing angler to
fly fish expertly using any normal spinning rod, but the length and flexibility of
a fly rod can give even better fly fishing results. Fly rods have a different reel
attachment mechanism that makes it impossible to attach a spinning reel to
them without using a REEL THINGTM. Or duct tape. You decide.
Noodle rodders will also find The Reel ThingTM useful.

The REEL THINGTM is made of black webbing, hook-and-loop fastener
material and plastic buckles. The reel foot of a spinning reel slides into
the vertical sleeve at the center of The Reel Thing. Then the horizontal
bands of webbing wrap around the encased reel foot and the cork on the
back to themselves with hook-and-loop fastener material. The Reel Thing
will attach a spinning reel onto any size fly rod handle.
