Fly reels have been built with click-pawl drag mechanisms since the earliest days of trout fishing, because it is a maintenance-free, proven design. In the spirit of helping those anglers who are new to the sport connect with its history, we offer the Leland Sonoma Trout Fly Reel.

What's in a name? When we started Leland Reel Company and began designing our fly reels, we had a focused concept: to make fly reels "classic" again.
We wanted to bring back the great days of fly fishing, when life was
more carefree, less technical and simply enjoyable. We wanted to offer
a fly reel that looked like the ones we dreamed about owning when we were younger - reels that spoke, visually, to the heritage of our sport.
We wanted to create fly reels that were elemental in design yet relevant functionally, with contemporary materials and performance.
At Leland Reel Company, we have almost three decades of retail customer
interaction. We've listened to our customers and we've learned a thing
or two. We know that our customers are losing confidence in their fly
tackle purchases. They're uncertain if they really need all the
perceived features of the latest and greatest fly reels, and they fear
that their new fly reel will be replaced next season with something
"better" that offers even more quantified performance.
At Leland Reel Company, we're moving away from this, designing great
fishing reels that work as intended and that will pass the test of
time, not only on the stream but on the shelf, too.
So come join us at Leland Reel Company, as we celebrate the sport of fly fishing.
