How do I change handle from left to right handed


The easiest way is to turn the rod over. Not all reels are ambidextrous. If there is a similar cap on the other side of the reel, then it is likely. You have to undo the screws and split the casing, and then turn everything around. A local fishing tackle shop would do it for you free of charge.

How do you change the retrieve to left or right hand on a orvis encounter fly reel ?


Drag factory installed for left-hand wind. To change your real to right-hand wind, remove spool, pull the keyed bush and clicker plate assembly off the spindle. Flip the clutch bearing (silver) and reassemble.
