Leland Reel Co. Classic Trout Fly Reel, 5/6
What we feel is the quintessentially classic fly reel, sized appropriately for all around trout fly fishing.
The Leland Classic Trout Fly Reel
Your grandfather was right. When it comes to fly fishing for trout, you certainly don't need a high-tech, large-arbor, sealed-drag, performance fly reel.
That's exactly why we designed our Leland Classic Trout Fly Reel. It's our vision of what a trout fly reel should be. It's just the right weight and size to balance your favorite trout rod and hold your best fly line.
It's simple in design and function and requires little to no maintenance. It provides enough adjustable resistance to slow down a larger trout, yet still smoothly pays out your fly line, protecting your lightest tippet.
This particular fly reel is perfect for any five our six weight fly rod that begs a more traditional fly reel. Our classic porting pattern and anodized finish is a nod to the past's more-basic designs. Acoustically, this fly reel sings with celebration when your earned fish runs downstream.
Of course, our fly reel is fully-machined from aircraft aluminum and then Teflon-anodized for a long life of beauty. However, that kinda technical talk bores us. It's probably best to say that your fly fishing grandfather would approve of our work, as well as our reel's solid brass accents.
This gem of a fly reel comes encased in simple neoprene reel case.
