The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I think of reels differently than most people due to the fact that I do not need a fancy, robust drag system for the situations I fish. This reel is only used to hold the fly line and needs to be durable enough to last in the conditions. This reel just so happens to be not only affordable, but machined and flashy at the same time. It was a no brainer for me. Also, one of the top-rated freshwater and saltwater reels on the market today.

Temple Fork Outfitters has a reputation for producing lifetime warrantied affordably dependable gear for years. The TFO NTR is no exception to that as the money was well spent for a solid, durable, and versatile reel that can be added to anyone's quiver. No complaints at all with the value for the money! I cannot find a better-quality reel for the price. From an affordability standpoint, I have been extremely pleased with the NTR Fly Reel.

Ideal for
  • As an all-around rugged reel, everyone needs this reel.
  • Comes in make sizes and color options.
  • Complete sealed drag systems and super durable.
Not ideal for
  • This reel is wide compared to the NXT Black Label and BVK SD. The NXT BL is 0.98” in width, whereas the NTR is 1.06”.

The Temple Fork Outfitters NTR is a large arbor fly reel that freshwater fly fishermen of all skill levels would use. Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, this reel is lightweight and strong. A one-way stainless-steel spindle bearing with an internal cap and O-ring seals the drag to prevent moisture and dust from entering. This reel comes in 4 sizes to accommodate rod sizes of 3-10 weight. Key Features:

  • Sealed Cork Drag – The drag system is designed to be smooth and protect fine tippets.
  • Easy Hand Retrieve Change – It is easy to change the retrieval from left to right-handed without a tool.
  • Neoprene Pouch – This reel comes with a protective neoprene pouch for storage 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!
