Saltwater fly-fishing is fast becoming a popular part of sea angling, especially among bass anglers. Even targeting mackerel and mullet can be very exciting when adopting fly tactics.
This range of large arbor reels for 4-12 weight lines are fully saltwater resistant and produced with an oversized ball bearing and one-way clutch bearing to offer a smooth performance.
The aluminium and anodized frame gives it an ultra-light feel, the spool can be quickly removed to enable left-hand or right-hand retrieve and the large rosewood handle gives it a touch of class. Also supplied with a protective storage case.
