As flies like the Jock Scott and Lady Caroline remind us, the rich aesthetic of Spey fishing is just as alluring as the incredible efficiency it provides. With the British Columbia Sea Run, we've placed equal emphasis on appearance and performance, producing a reel that would be right at home on the rivers of Vancouver Island in Roderick Haig-Brown's day. This uniquely-sized reel is perfectly at home on a switch or lighter Spey rod. It's like a vintage sports car with all the contemporary materials and technology of an F-1 race car.

I was on the hunt for a reel that would work on my lighter two-handers and my swtich rod. Checked out a lot of reels and then found this cool looking reel online. I have to admit, I liked the name of the reel, too. It's like nothing else out there. The color, two handles, click drag...super cool. If you're looking for something different, this is it. Every time I'm on the water, somone always comments on it. Keep it up Leland.
