The Orvis® Mirage® American Fly Reel is the perfect fly-fishing reel for both fresh and saltwater. This is a lightweight, high-tech fly reel that will keep even an expert happy. Zero start-up intertia and an incredibly smooth drag will help protect the finest tippet while fighting the biggest fish. 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.

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.
