Hope someone can help I am wanting to fit out a boat for what I believe is called flydragging where the boat has large rope reels fitted, which I am building from an article by Bill Woods photos on this site. However I can not find information on how they actually operate, on some boats they face forward and others astern and sometimes sideways but I can not tell how the ropes are directed astern to the net. They also seem to work in conjunction with a winch I can see the winch and the reels but how they work together is unclear. to haul the ropes in. I could do with a diagram or directions to one if anyone can help.

Many thanks Modelboat:)
