We carry three of the finest brands of fly reels – Abel, Bauer and Ross. We stock these for retails sales and these are brands we used on our guided fly fishing trips. All made in the USA!

We been trying to keep a good selection of reels in stock at different price points. For Steelhead, Salmon, Salt water and chasing big trout (7-9wt) here some of my favorites – Bauer RX, Ross Animas and Abel Rove & SDS. For all round trout – Bauer RVR, Ross Animas & Colorado and Abel VAYA & SDF.

Reels can be ordered with backing and fly line. We stock full line of Airflo fly lines and we can sure load up reel for you. Just email me at [email protected] for what your looking for.

The Ross Animas is just an awesome reel and starting to use some in my boat on guide trips now. Love there new olive finish and have them with this finish in stock now in 5/6wt and 7/8wt. Pictured below on the Echo Streamer X 9′ 7wt and this sure makes a great streamer setup with the 7/8 Ross reel.

The Ross Colorado is great reel for lighter weight trout rods. Pictured below is the 4/5wt on Winston 8’6″ 4wt Pure and this is one of my favorites for the upper Au Sable River. Both are in stock now.

For big trout its hard to beat the Bauer RVR fly reel. Pictured below on Winston 10′ 3wt Euro nymphing rod. Used this reel a ton last summer RVR 6/7 on my Winston Air 2 6wt and was ideal for landing big trout on small dries and late night on the Hex Hatch. 6/7, 5/6 and 2/3 models are all in stock now.
