Since Orvis started making the iconic Battenkill Fly Reel, more than a few trout have encountered it. Simple, streamlined, and affordable, this click and pawl reel has been a go to for anglers who seek simplicity when fly fishing. The durable, machined aluminum reel will handle the rugged demands of the river, while its ultra light design balances perfectly on shorter rods. The drag system is adjusted internally and is designed to be used with the palm of your hand for an organic feel when playing fish. Sizes I III feature a narrow spool to reduce line stacking, and the slightly larger arbor increases line retrieval. Size IV and V reels are specifically designed for spey and switch rods.
