The Curated Take
The Orvis Mirage LT is an excellent high end reel from Orvis that is made to be a lighter version of the original Orvis Mirage. This reel pairs well with lighter freshwater setups and I've found this reel very enjoyable for backpacking excursions where every ounce of weight counts. Its capable of targeting both large and small fish because even though it is lighter, it still has a version of the original Mirage ceramic and stainless steel sealed drag system. Being a large arbor reel, its capable of holding plenty of line both for smooth casting and fighting large fish. Overall, this is the reel to get for upgrading a decent fly fishing outfit to a top of the line outfit.
- Excellent drag strength and smoothness
- Zero-inertia start up for easy casting
- Sealed drag system extends the life of the reel
- The paint can be scratched during use
The Orvis® Mirage® LT Fly Reel is the perfect fly reel for both fresh and saltwater. Designed to be paired with lighter rods, this reel does everything the Mirage does. Zero start-up intertia and an incredibly smooth drag will help protect the finest tippet while fighting the biggest fish. Beginners to experts will enjoy this reel on their lighter rod setups. Key Features:
- Sealed Drag – A washer drag system that is sealed from the elements will allow the angler to stop big fish even in the most dirty and corrosive environments.
- Easy-to-Use Drag Adjust System – The drag is simple to adjust while fighting a fish. With a simple turn of the knob, tighten or loosen the drag while still concentrating on the fish.
- Large Arbor – By having a large arbor, line pick-up speed is increased, and the line will not develop memory from being coiled too tightly.
