Product details

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.

Review by Curated Expert Jacob Jesionek
I love how well the Orvis Mirage LT Fly Reel pairs with a lightweight trout rod like the Orvis Helios. It has plenty of drag to stop big Colorado browns in their tracks and even handles Ohio steelhead with ease. This is the perfect reel for the serious angler looking to shave weight off their rod outfit. Also, it is not too flashy, and it can easily pair with other companies' rods without standing out.

Is the Orvis Mirage LT made in the USA?
The Orvis Mirage LT is made in New Hampshire by the same skilled American craftsmen that build the Mirage. The LT offers the same increased retrieve rates, reduction in line coil, and is machined from the same strong, yet lightweight, 6061 T6 aluminum barstock as the Mirage.

This is a top-quality reel at a great price. It is extremely lightweight while maintaining a high level of durability, so it will last a lifetime. Good for trout and most freshwater species.

This reel was designed to balance perfectly with lighter weight rods, and yet offers Orvis' legendary reel engineering. The drag is sealed and maintenance free that offers zero to full drag with a twist of the knob. Zero start up inertia and precise low-end control that eliminates line shock and protects light tippet. This reel is going to fee like butter in your hands.
