The Lamson Guru S Fly Reel is a rugged disc drag fly reel. Machined from bar stock aluminum, this spool was built to be lightweight and strong. Available in four sizes, this covers 2-10wt fly line sizes. Fly anglers of all skill levels would use this. Key Features:

  • Extra Porting – Porting of the spool allows for quicker drying of the fly line and decreases extra weight.
  • Integrated Counter Balance – This removes excess parts and reduces the weight of the spool.
  • Narrow Spool – The narrow spool allows for better line stacking and reduced line twist.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
