Choosing the Best Fly Reel
The fly fishing reel is a compact and efficient machine designed to store, dispense, and retrieve the fly line and backing. Fly reels also provide an angler with the welcome assistance of a mechanical drag or braking system that helps slow down a running fish. These devices are generally constructed of high-grade aluminum and can be highly engineered with the assistance of computer software commonly found in architecture and design firms, or they can be "funny paper simple" in their functionality.

detdesc::Fly Reel

Ages ago, when the Macedonians began to fool local trout and grayling with artificial flies, there were no fly reels. These anglers would hold gathered silken fly line in a bunched and folded wad in their free hand. It's easy to see the potential pitfalls in such a system and it was only a matter of time before someone chose to solve the problem and introduce a mechanized way to manage line. Since the introduction of the first modern fly reels in the 1800s, the sport of fly fishing and its techniques have changed dramatically.

The fly fishing reel is a compact and efficient machine designed to store, dispense, and retrieve the fly line and backing. Fly reels also provide an angler with the welcome assistance of a mechanical drag or braking system that helps slow down a running fish. These devices are generally constructed of high-grade aluminum and can be highly engineered with the assistance of computer software commonly found in architecture and design firms, or they can be "funny paper simple" in their functionality.

Today's Fly Reels

Modern fly reels consist of five major design elements: an external frame for durability, a reel foot for easy attachment to the fly rod, an arbor for line storage, dispensing, and retrieval, an internal drag system that can help an angler maintain optimal fighting pressure against a fiercely running or very large fish, and of course, a handle to make the whole system go round.

Fly fishing reels are single-action, which means one revolution of the handle gives you a single revolution of the spool (multi-action or "multiplier" fly reels have been developed and marketed on and off for decades, but the best fly reel models have been of the single-action style).

Generally, the smallest and lightest fly reels are termed "standard arbor reels." Mid arbor designs boast a wider-diameter spool, yielding a slightly faster retrieve, and large arbor reels give the fastest line retrieval or pick up speeds available. When fishing for strong-running fish like steelhead, tarpon, bonefish, and other saltwater species, large and mid arbor fly reels are the most useful, as these fish can run toward an angler creating the need to gather line quickly.

Construction and Durability of best fly reels

Machined Aluminum
The most structurally sound reels are constructed of machined aluminum, entirely cut from bar stock in the way the David was carved from a block of marble. Elegant in their simplicity, machined reels are extremely dynamic, yet are comprised of the fewest assembled parts, so there's fewer things that can go wrong. Sophisticated design standards ensure these reels function as a smoothly spinning whole. Ounce for ounce, these reels are the strongest and most precise on the market. Drag systems can produce lots of friction and lots of heat. Machined reels also allow for ventilation in the system, reducing the possibility that the drag system will freeze or lock up due to overheating.

Anodization and Lubrication

Keeping grit and grime out of your fly reel is important. Low or no-maintenance lubrication and a durable finishing process are critical characteristics that increase the life of your reel and safeguard against mechanical breakdown.

Optimize the fly reel to perform its best

Smooth Rotation Engagement
Start-up inertia is the single biggest obstacle to landing a fish, whether line is coming in or the fish is running out. A reel that requires the smallest amount of energy to start turning, avoiding a "spike" in sudden resistance, is the best choice when seeking to reduce stress on a fish taking line. Such spikes in start-up energy can place stress on terminal tackle, snapping leaders and light tippet in an instant. In this respect, a fly reel is only as good as its drag system, and a drag system is only as good as the materials and design that go into it.

Cork Disc Drag

Drag systems employing cork and synthetic discs (usually Rulon) consistently perform at the top of industry standards. These are the smoothest systems around; they dampen the transition from stillness to rotation resulting in the least-jarring spool engagement and fewer fish lost to start-up jolts and other snags in the energy transfer system. That may sound like a mouthful, but it means fewer broken tippets and more successful landings. The materials that go into a great drag system must be durable enough to withstand high levels of pressure, heat, and friction. Retaining its shape no matter the drag pressure, treated cork has proven to be a superior drag material because of its compressibility.

Arbor

The arbor is the interior cylinder of the fly reel; it's what your fly line wraps around. Recent design trends have emphasized an arbor with a greater circumference. With large arbor reels, line coiling or "memory" is reduced, and the rate of line retrieval is increased. Most importantly, outgoing drag tension is mitigated as line is depleted, decreasing the chance of losing that once-in-a-lifetime trophy on a long run. Fishing a large arbor maintains a tighter connection with the fish, reducing slack and giving you more control over unpredictable fish-fighting conditions.

August 1 (Sonoma, CA): If you're new to fly fishing, you should know that the defining attribute of our sport is the unique way we deliver our fly. It's called fly casting and this activity should be celebrated.

To truly enjoy fly casting to the fullest, you need a balanced outfit that feels comfortable and stable in your hand. This doesn't happen by chance. Rod length, rod weight, line weight and reel weight all play a role in a truly balanced outfit. Miss a step and the outfit falls out of balance...and so does the fly casting experience.

Furthermore, a fly fishing outfit must be efficient at amplifying and transferring your body's movement and energy into the fly line, which is the goal of any efficient fly cast. Rod taper, blank thickness and materials all play a role in this quest. When you smoothly pull our Leland Sonoma Trout fly rod to a stop (the secret to a good cast), you'll be rewarded with the smoothest, most-efficient fly cast you've ever made.

The right fly line also makes a difference for fly casting enjoyment. The correct taper, head length and weight done smartly makes casting that much easier and fishing more effective. Our Leland Pliny fly line solves the riddle. Color-coded, so you can always efficiently control your line and put your fly where you want it. And since 90% of trout are caught within a forty foot (or less) cast, our Pliny fly line assures that distance on every cast. Simply put, this fly line is a joy to cast. 

Sure a trout fly reel is just a storage device for the fly line, but the Leland Sonoma Trout fly reel is one heck of a reel. Fully-machined from solid, bar-stock aluminum, then anodized for a long life a hard fishing. Its simple click drag needs no adjusting. It will keep your fly line from overrunning when a trout charges off with your fly. If necessary, you can slow down that fish by “palming” the exposed rim of the fly reel's spool. It's simple, elegant and functional. Most importantly, it perfectly balances with the Sonoma Trout fly rod.

It takes focus and planning to design a fly fishing outfit where the whole (rod, reel and line) is greater than the sum of parts and that's exactly what you get in our Leland Sonoma Trout Fly Fishing Outfit. Fly casting becomes effortless and accurate as you discover efficient control of your fly line and catch more fish.

Our Leland Sonoma Trout is the perfect fly fishing outfit for anyone wanting to learn how to cast correctly and efficiently, then take smooth loops of fly line to a small trout stream and apply your craft. Controlled distance, accuracy and subtle presentations will be yours at will. Fly casting in this manner alone will put a smile on your face, but when your fine cast is rewarded with a wild trout, the wold becomes a bit better. 

If you've been wanting to fly fish, or if you've been struggling with your current rod, reel and line, it's time to find balance and efficiency in our Leland Sonoma Trout Fly Fishing Outfit. By the way, this is the same fly rod, reel and fly line we use for fly casting instruction every day at our fly fishing ranch in Sonoma. We love it and you won't be disappointed.


Pro Review - Leland's Burke White

Spending my days at the ranch assisting anglers with more efficient fly casts, I've noticed a thing or two. Mainly I've noticed most anglers using more energy than necessary to present the fly accurately.

One thing is for sure, using proven fly casting principles to more efficiently cast a fly line is important. However just as important is a balanced and efficient fly fishing outfit and the Leland Sonoma Trout Outfit is just the ticket.

The Leland Sonoma Trout outfit is brilliant. It's balanced in hand, which not only makes this outfit more comfortable to hold, it makes casting easier. It's also incredibly efficient at amplifying our students' casting energy and transferring this energy into the fly line. Simply put, this is one easy casting fly fishing outfit.

Any angler will quickly notice how easy this outfit is to cast, and when tight loops jump efficiently off this rod's tip, confidence is born. Confidence on the water makes all the difference...in enjoyment and fish-catching success.

If you're new to fly fishing or on the hunt for a truly-balanced and efficient fly fishing outfit for trout...you just found it.

THREE FORKS RANCH, COLORADO


 


Three Forks Ranch Fishing:   

Situated in the high mountain aspens,
Three Forks Ranch straddles
the Wyoming Colorado border.  This 200,000-acre working cattle ranch is
one of the premier fishing destinations in the West.  Mountain streams
and springs breathe life into the Little Snake River right inside the
gate of the Colorado headquarters.  The headwaters of this river are
home to countless rainbow, cutthroat, and brook trout.  This fishery has
been the beneficiary of the largest privately funded river restoration
project in the history of America.  Once a drying giant,
new life has been given to the Little Snake River.  Sixteen miles of
the river has been restored to what Mother Nature may have wished it 150
years ago and 30 oxbow lakes now dot the property, all connected to the
river by reopened river channels and all home to wonderful, fighting
trout.


The typical week: The first day you and your guide will take
off to a stretch of river or lakes and assess your fishing prowess. 
From there you and your guide will decide which waters you would like to
fish.  Whether it's catching "big boys" in the lakes or testing your
3-weight rod on the South Fork, Three Forks Ranch has plenty of water
for the novice or the purist.   Four-wheeler trips or horseback trips to
the upper lakes are available if you choose.  For those that would like
a break from fishing, cattle drives are usually going on which you are
welcome to participate in; trail riding, wildlife viewing, hiking,
4-wheeling, and our 14-course sporting clay course are all available to
you.


Season - June 10th  through October 15th    

 

Three Forks Travel:

To get to Three Forks Ranch you will need to make travel arrangements to Hayden, Colorado, with connections through
Denver.  Three Forks runs a free shuttle to and from Hayden,
approximately 75 minutes.  There is also a county-owned airport with a
5500-foot paved landing strip at Dixon, Wyoming, that welcomes private
airplanes.  Shuttle is also available from Dixon, approximately 30
minutes. 

 

Three Forks also offers its own private aviation service from Denver to
Dixon Wyoming.  Flights in their five-seat twin engine King Air depart
for the lodge at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. daily.  The cost is $750 per
person round trip and it is the most reliable service to the area.  If
you are interested in this flight option please contact us and we will
make the needed arrangements.  There is also a county-owned airport with
a 5500-foot paved landing strip at Dixon, Wyoming, that welcomes
private airplanes.  Shuttle is also available from Dixon, approximately
30 minutes.

 

Itinerary: Three Forks Ranch operates on a very flexible schedule. 
Various lengths of stays are available, from 6N/5D stays to 3N/2D
stays.  Select the length of stay you like and the day of arrival.  We
will do our best to schedule you in.  Early booking ensures the dates of
your choice.

 

Departure: The evening before your departure, all incidentals purchased
during the week should be paid in full.  We will have a driver ready to
take you to the airport for the various departure times

 

Three Forks Ranch Accommodations:

The River Rock Lodge will provide guests with relaxing enjoyment over hors d'oevres and cocktails followed by delicious
dinners served in our guest dining room. The accommodations are very
comfortable in our nicely appointed Aspen, Alpine and Hidden Valley
homes.  We do request that there be no smoking in any of the buildings. 
Smoking areas are provided on the decks of all the buildings.

 

The guest facilities are within walking distance to a large portion of
this incredible trout water.  But, with over 16 miles of private river
fishing and 14 miles of off-channel and oxbow fishing, one of the
lodge's superb fishing guides will escort you to the farthest reaches. 
Catering to a capacity of only 15 guests the fishing opportunities are
endless.  Personalized service, warm Western hospitality, and great
fishing are their trademarks.

 

Three Forks Ranch Meals:

All meals are taken at the River Rock Lodge and scheduled to the angling
conditions and where you will be fishing that day. On trips to the more
distant fishing locations the kitchen staff will prepare a wonderful
picnic lunch. Generally breakfast is between 7:00-8:00 a.m.  Fishing
times are later as we move into September.  After a full day of fishing,
you return to the lodge in time to relax before dinner, which is
usually served around 6:30 p.m.  Please let us know if you have any
dietary restrictions.

 

Alcoholic Beverages:

Three Forks Ranch provides complimentary beer, wine and your favorite
mixed drinks.  We suggest only moderate drinking before dinner hour. 
Wading can be dangerous and your
guide will decide when excessive drinking has impaired your ability to
fish safely.  Our elevation at the headquarters is 7200 feet.  Alcohol
can slow down your body's ability to adjust to the change in altitude. 
We also recommend that you drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep
your first few nights on the ranch.


 


Three Forks Ranch Clothing:

Dress at Three Forks Ranch is casual and comfortable.  The weather can
change abruptly so be prepared.  The nights and mornings are cool,
sometimes in the 40's and the daytime temperatures can climb into the
80's.  It is best to dress in layers.  Long johns are often worn under
fishing pants and wool socks under waders.  On top, a flannel shirt,
warm sweater, rain jacket, down vest or jacket.

 

Included:

Round-trip transfer from Hayden, Colorado, or Dixon, Wyoming. 
Accommodations based on double occupancy; three meals per day;
knowledgeable guide per two fishermen with full fishing services;
transportation to and from the river on a daily basis; complimentary
beverages.  Horseback riding, 4-wheeling, hiking, wildlife tours, and
sporting clay course.

 

Not Included:

All scheduled commercial air transportation; fishing licenses, sales
tax, gratuities, tackle charges, telephone calls, and other incidental
purchases.

September 28, 2011 (San Francisco, CA): The origins of European nymphing might be up for debate—some say the Czech Republic, others Poland, some believe it has roots in Spain or France—but one thing is certain: regardless of where it began, the future of this innovative technique lies in the revolutionary design of the Sage ESN Fly Rod Series. The Sage ESN, short for European Style Nymphing, is meticulously engineered for outstanding sensitivity in turbulent runs and currents, where weighted nymph rigs are king and subtle strike detection is the name of the game.

It's all in the tip: If a trout so much as breathes on your fly, the Sage ESN Fly Rod will detect and transmit that vibration with unprecedented clarity. This heightened sensitivity in the rod tip is what sets the Sage ESN Fly Rod apart from the competition, harnessing the power of Sage's Konnetic Technology for unparalleled performance. In traditional indicator nymphing, the connection between angler and fly is interrupted by slack and missed visual cues. Simply put, strikes aren't detected and fish are lost. European nymphing supersedes the need for a strike indicator by relying on the subtle sensation of a fish on the take, and the Sage ESN Fly Rod's remarkably responsive tip grants the angler an acute read of the subsurface that other rods just can't provide. Sage ESN Fly Rods immediately relay every minute animation from tip to butt, providing comprehensive control of the action and relaying the most subtle strikes. This emphasis on “feeling the fish” has contributed to the zen-like following of European nymphing fanatics across the globe, all of whom will welcome the highly specialized design of the Sage ESN Series.


 
Hoover in the catch: The Sage ESN Fly Rod Series is optimized for pressured water and wily trout, providing you with a purpose-built instrument for one of the most effective fly fishing techniques around. It's not uncommon for competitors in European nymphing tournaments to bring in twenty fish an hour, leaving no time for missed opportunities and spit hooks. The Sage ESN is made for this level of fast paced action where every strike matters, transmitting subtle takes up the rod length for powerful hooks sets on the back end. At ten feet in length, Sage ESN Fly Rods are ideal for point-blank pocket water or more distant riffles, extending your touch to every square-inch of the water. If you love directing taut nymph rigs through slots and picking the pockets for trout, if you refuse call it a day until you've tied into every last fish, then the Sage ESN will be king of your quiver.
 
 
Konnetic™ Technology = More Fish:
Marking Sage's long-awaited entry into the world of European nymphing, the Sage ESN Series represents years of engineering made possible by groundbreaking new manufacturing process: Konnetic Technology. Konnetic Technology is the breakthrough that opened the door for ultra-lightweight, extremely efficient rods like the Sage ESN Series. Pioneered in Sage ONE Fly Rods, Konnetic Technology is perhaps best highlighted in the extremely fine, yet powerful, taper of the Sage ESN Series. The Sage ESN Fly Rod also features a compound taper mandral that allows for standout power in the butt section while maintaining the superior sensitivity of the narrow tip.
 
 

 

Sage ESN Fly Rods – Pro Review by Leland's Jon Ng

What's the word...

Sage has finally addressed the world of European nymphing with their new ESN Fly Rod Series, and what an entrance they've made. We had a chance fish some Czech nymphs with the Sage ESN 4100-4 Fly Rod, and although we didn't fair quite as well as some of the famed tournament nymphers, we still had a successful day and a lot of fun.

 

Features...

Instead of rambling on about the technicalities of Konnetic Technology, let's leave it at this: a narrower, more efficient taper means the Sage ESN telegraphs the slightest strikes down the rod length so you can set the hook.

 

Action...

The Sage ESN Fly Rod is a medium action and a compound taper mandral construction. Translation: with enough flex in the tip for a nuanced read of the underwater action and enough power in the butt for sturdy hook sets, the Sage ESN is the best of both worlds. Not to mention the lightweight design makes a day of high-sticking a breeze on your arm and a blast in the water.

 

Fit and Finish...

Sage doesn't miss a beat when they stamp their name on a new line of rods, and the ESN Series is no exception. The forest green shaft and gold trim wraps give the blank a great finish, similar in color to the famed Sage Z-Axis. The cocobolo reel seat is a personal favorite, and the choice to use aluminum instead of nickel silver improves performance without compromising the great look. Also, the Fuji ceramic stripping guides are a great touch and the mark of any quality rod.

 

 

Run Down...

 

Pros: In keeping with Sage's commitment to crafting the best tools for specific applications, the Sage ESN is true to it's name: an ultra-sensitive tip paired with a powerful butt for maximum success with European nymphing.

 

Cons: Although European nymphing is quickly amassing a following on this side of the pond, some might not have room in their quiver yet for this specific application. But for those who are in the know when it comes to contact nymphing, the Sage ESN is just what the doctor ordered.

 

Bottom Line: Sage has once again delivered on their promise to build the best possible rods for one of the most fun techniques around. The Sage ESN Series marks a welcomed entry into the world of European nymphing with the best best materials assembled by innovative minds.

Leland on Simms Fly Fishing Products: It's funny how childhood memories can influence one's life! Just ask K.C. Walsh of Simms Fishing Products about the underlying theme of his company and its location. He'll tell you it was because his grandfather took him fly fishing in Bozeman, MT as a young man. Funny how what started as a desire by K.C. to work in the fly fishing industry, turned into the design of the world's best fishing waders. Funny how that vision of wader design transformed a company into one that now manufacturers what is considered by many to be the finest collection of fly fishing -outdoor wear in the entire industry. Funny? Not really. Just great concepts and a lot of hard work: Welcome to Simms Fishing Products! At Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters, we carry and use only the best fly fishing gear. There's not enough time in our hurried world to worry about whether our chest waders or rain jackets are going to leak. We talk with K.C. quite frequently and love to listen about his passion for developing the most useful and highest quality fly fishing gear. We at Leland have toured the Simms factory, attended their numerous product seminars, and vigorously used and field tested their equipment and we can tell you flat out; K.C. is doing it right!

detdesc::Leland on the Simms Heavyweight Waderwick Bottoms

Few fly anglers know the key to fishing in the winter, Simms Heavyweight Waderwick Bottoms. When the snows begin to fall most anglers have long packed it up and are into “other” sports, but for the select few, Simms Heavyweight Waderwick keep them on the river year round. Coupling with the air trapping comfort of fleece with moisture transport nothing says warmth like Polartec® technology and nothing says Polartec like Simms Heavyweight Waderwick. Who cares about skiing anyway? See on the Missouri River, Montana in December.

Leland on Simms Fishing Products Funny how childhood memories can influence one's life! Just ask K.C. Walsh of Simms Fishing Products what the underlying theme to his company and its location, he'll tell you it was his grandfather taking him fly fishing in Bozeman, MT. Funny how what started as a desire by K.C. to work in the fly fishing industry turned into the design of the world's best fishing wader. Funny how that wader design has turned into a company that now manufacturers what is considered by many the best fishing waders and technical clothing. Funny? Not really. Just hard work: Welcome to Simms Fishing Products! At Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters, we carry and use only the best fly fishing gear. There is not enough time in our hurried world to worry whether our chest waders or rain jackets are going to leak. We talk with K.C. quite frequently and love to listen to his passion for development of the most useful and high quality fly fishing apparel. Our shop employees have toured the Simms factory, attended product seminars and can tell you, K.C. is doing it right.

CLEARWATER LODGE


 


Welcome to eastern Shasta County's newest and most
remarkable fly fishing destination!  We've combined the ambiance,
elegance, and spacious accommodations of the extraordinary 1921 Arts and
Crafts-style Pit River Lodge with the talented guide staff, creative
menus, and renowned fly fishing schools of Clearwater House on Hat Creek
to create a brand new, full-service fly fishing destination. We offer
meals, accommodations, and guiding and instruction on northeastern
California's five great wild trout rivers and spring-fed stillwaters.

  

Clearwater Lodge Fishing : 

The Fall River

This famous spring creek rises clear and cold from Thousand Springs, in the shadow of Mt. Shasta, and flows nearly thirty miles
through the lush Fall River Valley.  Its large wild rainbows come
readily to a well-fished dry fly or nymph.  Fall River's legendary
hatches range from the tiny #22 Trico spinner to the giant #6 Hexagenia
mayfly.  Fall River is fished only from aluminum prams with electric
motors.


 


Hat Creek

Hat Creek is California's version of the chalk streams of southern
England where fly fishing was born.  Managed for wild trout only for
over twenty years, Hat's rich waters support a diverse insect population
and thousands of trout per mile in the three miles of Trophy Water. 
The fishing is tough on the flats, with large fussy trout, small flies,
and 7X tippets.  There is also over a mile of productive riffles and
runs for nymphing.  The evening caddis hatches often bring the fish to
the surface in a feeding frenzy.


 


The Pit River

The Pit might be the finest naturally-occuring wild trout fishery in
California.  The final 25 miles, below Lake Britton, are in a deep
canyon and are divided into three reaches by dams and powerhouses. 
Access is challenging, but the beauty of the canyon, the extensive
pockets and pools, and the high catch rate of bright wild fish are
perfect if you are an energetic wader.


 


The McCloud River

A classic pool and pocket water river in a magnificent wooded canyon,
the McCloud is northern California's most famous freestone fishery. 
McCloud rainbows are world renown.  Special regulations protect this
fishery and it produces trout to 24 inches, typically on nymphs and
streamers.  In the fall, spawning browns add an extra thrill.  The three
miles of Nature Conservancy water is zero-kill and limited to ten rods a
day.  We fish both this water and the six miles of public water above
the Conservancy.


 


The Upper Sacramento River

After a chemical spill in 1992 and subsequent closure for three years,
this classic little trout river has astonished everyone with the speed
and success of its recovery.  The rainbow are
back, all wild fish, and in remarkable numbers.  Nearly 40 miles of
pools, pockets, riffles, and runs, with relatively easy access and
wading and the promise that with continued enlightened management, the
Upper Sac will soon regain its place as one of California's premier wild
trout fisheries.


 


The Sacramento River Float Trips

The Sacramento below Redding has become recognized as a world-class
rainbow fishery.  We use drift boats to fish the excellent water between
Redding and Anderson, getting out on the gravel bars and islands to
wade and fish.  While it's mostly nymphing, there are good caddis
hatches from spring to fall.


 


Northeastern California Stillwaters

Baum Lake, Eastman Lake, Manzanita Lake, McCumber Lake, Eagle Lake,
McCoy Flats - these and other stillwaters around Clearwater offer
excellent fishing for outsized rainbow and browns.  We provide float
tubes and pontoon boats for our guests and guide many of these
fisheries.  If it's big fish you want, these stillwaters are the place. 
5 pound fish are frequent; 10 pounders not unknown.


 


Private Trophy Trout

The Hat Creek Ranch's two stillwaters and one half mile of Hat Creek
offers fee fishing for big, aggressive rainbows to 10 pounds.  A superb
private water for guided wading, bank fishing, and pontoon boat access.

            

Clearwater Lodge Accommodation:

The lodge features seven bedrooms, each with a private bath. The
adjoining Annex offers six singles and two large shared baths.  The
three Cottages, set among the oaks and pines and broad lawns, feature 2
and 3 bedroom suites.


Clearwater Lodge Clothing:

In the Pacific North West it is always possible to encounter a wide
variety of weather conditions.  We recommend that you always come well
prepared with different layers including lightweight long sleeve and
short-sleeved shirts, fleece top and bottoms, synthetic long underwear,
rain jacket, sun and rain hats and fishing gloves.  Evening attire at
the lodge is casual.

 

Clearwater Lodge Climate:

Temperatures typically range from the mid 50's to the mid 90's.  In the
summer it is usually quite warm during the day and cool in the evening. 
However, it is important for guests to be prepared for cold rainy
conditions throughout the season.

 

Clearwater Lodge Rates: Packages Vary, Call for details!




Included:


Accommodation, meals, guiding, rods, reels, and wading equipment.


Not Included:

State and local taxes, alcohol, fishing licenses, terminal tackle.

Red Truck Diesel Fly Reel 5/6 Weight:



A do-it-all trout reel with the look, sound and feel of the reels of old!




  • Here at Red Truck we have a motto “Trout is King.” Basically, this means there are more trout fly fisherman than any other species. We knew to be
    successful we had to have the best trout reel on the market. With that thought in mind we spent two years testing and refining (the testing is the fun
    part) what would become Diesel 5/6.


  • When our friends started fishing the Diesel Fly Reels it was clear we had accomplished our mission. It’s perfectly
    sized for a five or six weight line system with plenty of backing, should a large trout head downriver. The smooth drag has the perfect range to keep large
    fish from coming unbuttoned. Not only does this fly reel look and sound like a “true” trout reel, it has all the contemporary performance and craftsmanship
    you deserve. Fully-machined from solid bar-stock aluminum and anodized for a long life of use, you can rest assured you’ve made a smart investment in your
    sport.


  • Red Truck Diesel Fly Reels


  • When we set out to design the Diesel Series of fly reels, our main goal was to make reels that we ourselves would enjoy fishing forever.
    We jogged our memories for ideas from our favorite reels from the past and pored over our huge selection of modern designs, picking and choosing the
    features and styles that, to us, embody the perfect freshwater fly reel.


  • The criteria were fairly simple: the reel had to be functional, durable, and beautiful. It had to look and sound like a fly reel. It had
    to have the appeal to stand the test of time. In short, it had to deserve to exist. Fully machined from anodized aluminum, the Diesel is corrosion-,
    scratch-, and impact-resistant. The proven click-pawl drag system is dependable, simple, and easily convertible from right to left-hand wind. Should you
    need to apply more pressure on fired-up trout and steelhead, the exposed palming rim is there for you.


  • With sweet incoming and out-going clicks, Diesel reels will satisfy anglers yearning for the simple elegance of yesteryear. And by narrowing the spool and increasing its diameter, we engineered large arbor performance into the Diesel,
    with the superior backing capacity of a standard arbor reel. We've also included a couple of nice finishing touches, like a machined brass line guard and a
    leather and cotton-weave zippered reel pouch to keep your reel safe for decades.


  • We won't go so far as to say that the Diesel reel will catch you more fish. But its sweet sound and downright classic style will help you enjoy the fish
    you do catch all the more.


  • Welcome to Red Truck Diesel Fly Reels.
