Sierra Nevada Golden Trout Fly Reel:
A fly reel your grandaddy would approve of.
When it comes to choosing a fly reel that celebrates the simplicity of small stream angling, the Sierra Nevada Golden Trout is a rustic and elegant option all its own. At home on bamboo, glass, and even contemporary graphite fly rods, our Golden Trout fly reel offers the function and feel you want when plying the small, secret streams where fly fishing is unpretentious and uncomplicated.
Nothing fancy here. No large-arbor spools, no NASA-designed drag system, no gaudy color options...just a fly reel like you might hope to find in your grandfather's sock drawer one day. With a click and pawl drag system that needs no adjusting, you'll hear our fly reel's laughter, as it celebrates each wild trout you catch.
Of course it's fully machined from solid bar-stock aluminum and then Teflon anodized for amazing scratch resistance and a very long life in the field...but to be honest, who really cares about all that technical stuff. It's probably best described a beautiful little trout fly reel with soul. Something your grandfather would definitely approve of.
