The Orvis Mirage Fly Reel gives you the edge over all fresh and saltwater fish thanks to its true large arbor performance that picks up line fast. Available in a wide range of sizes, the Mirage suits trout and panfish to bonefish, stripers, tarpon, tuna, marlin, and sails. Anodized 6061 T6 aluminum keeps the reel strong and lightweight, and the Mirage also has a heavily ventilated spool to shed weight yet keep the reel's overall strength. Its completely sealed and maintenance free drag surface is impervious to saltwater, dirt, grit, and other corrosive elements so the Mirage is able to successfully hold up to real world abuse. A positive click drag knob offers accurate and repeatable drag settings, while the Mirage's specially designed handle reduces line catching. The Mirage's aggressive diamond knob knurling enables an easier grasp and adjustment during battle. Its quick release spool also provides convenience while an included cloth bag stores the reel during transport and storage. Please note that the VII size comes with two spool choices. Pick the high capacity deep spool for blue water species or the shallow spool for the highest amount of line pick up for the serious tarpon angler shallow spool has nearly a foot per crank and nearly 40% faster line pick up than the size VI reel with the same spool capacity.
