Fly reel

If you practice the art of fly fishing, you need to use a very specific reel. Considered the simplest and lightest reel on the market, the fly fishing reel is in fact used as a simple reserve for the fly line. Whether manual, semi-automatic or automatic, fly reels allow you to retrieve the line once it is out, so that it doesn't get tangled up in your feet while you're fishing. Equipped with a powerful progressive drag and a solid structure, fly reels allow anglers to stalk a wide variety of fish including trout, salmon, pike and pike-perch.

There are several sizes of reel for fly fishing and they are all different depending on their capacity. They allow you to load different-sized silks. To make your choice, the first criterion to take into account when choosing a fly reel is that it should be " wide arbor ", meaning that it should be as wide as possible for an optimised and rapid retrieve speed. A wide arbor reel will also give the angler a good reserve for the backing (the filling line placed before the line). Often made from a block of aluminium, the fly reel is light but no less robust. Quality is an important criterion, so you'll find quality fly reels at the best prices with brands like : Snowbee or Greys.

Professional quality fly fishing reels

The quality of a fly fishing reel can be recognised by its characteristics: design material, configuration, balance, etc. Most of the fly reels in our catalogue are made from aeronautical aluminium, giving them excellent strength and power. They are designed to be as light as possible to make manoeuvring easy for anglers. What's more, they all come with a highly efficient disc brake system. Some models are reversible, allowing anglers to use them without constraint, whether they are right- or left-handed.
