The Lamson Liquid Fly Reel is a unique and innovative pressure-cast aluminum fly reel. The casting manufacturing allows for different configurations that are not available with typical machined reels. The sealed conical disc drag is smooth and designed to protect fine tippets. This reel is available in 4 sizes to cover rod weight of 2-10wt. Fly fishermen of all skill levels would use this.

Key Features:

  • Large Arbor – The large arbor aids with quicker line pick up and less line memory.
  • U-Shaped Spool – This design allows for increased backing capacity.
  • Drawstring Pouch – The reel comes with a drawstring pouch for safe storage when not in use.

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.
