The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

This fly reel is one of the most durable fly reels for the price. This product is for someone looking to have a reel that can be used for multiple applications, as this series has multiple options depending on their needs. The only issue I have had with this fly reel is after two years of use, the drag sometimes likes to get stuck, making it hard to adjust while on the water. This could be an issue, especially for saltwater applications. The great thing about TFO is they offer a lifetime warranty for repairs on the reels. This fly reel is the best in its class regarding durability and performance.

Ideal for
  • Most durable in the Temple Fork Outfitters fly reel lineup.
  • Great for not only freshwater but also saltwater ready.
  • Sealed drag makes for a long-lasting fly reel.
Not ideal for
  • I would not consider this a "small water" fly reel. This reel is only fitting for a few 3wt fly rods due to its weight.

The Temple Fork Outfitters BVK Sealed Drag Reel is a large arbor reel that fly fishermen of all skill levels would use. This machined aluminum reel is anodized, making it saltwater corrosion resistant. The Derlin stainless steel drag is sealed to prevent moisture and grime from getting in. Available in four different sizes, this reel will cover line weights of 3 to 11. Key Features:

  • Sealed Drag – The sealed drag increases the durability of the reel by preventing corrosive elements from affecting the drag.
  • Super Large Arbor – The extra size of the large arbor reel allows for quicker line pick up and less line memory.
  • Nylon Reel Pouch – The nylon reel pouch serves as a safe and convenient option to store the reel when not in use.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!
