Anti-Reverse on a spinning reel is a feature that prevents the reel from turning backwards and engages the drag. Some reels come with an Anti Reverse switch that allows the angler to choose whether it is engaged or not. This feature has helped people “back-reel” rather than allowing the drag to fight the fish.
Can you spool a reel backwards?
You can definitely put line on going in the wrong direction. If you search the archives, you’ll find a bunch of “how to spool” threads. Basically, lay the spool on the floor and wind a few feet of line on. If the line looks “coily” as you do this, flip the spool over and try it that way.
