The Curated Take

Joseph Smith, Fly Fishing Expert
By the Expert Community

Fly fishing anglers who use the Orvis Battenkill click and pawl fly reel would be candidates to have a spare spool. A spare spool allows anglers to carry different fly lines ( i.e. floating and sinking lines) for use in different fishing conditions. Made from machined aluminum this is a durable spool.

Ideal for
  • This is a spare spool for the Orvis click and pawl reel.
  • This spool is made from aluminum.
  • The spool easily can be changed on the reel.
Not ideal for
  • This is for a click and pawl and not a disc drag.

The Orvis Battenkill Reel is the old, proven, traditional standard reel from Orvis. This reel is for the purist who enjoys the sound of a click pawl reel. Perfect for balancing with a small stream fly rod. This is a classic reel that still has its place for traditional anglers.

Key Features:

  • Click Pawl Drag – The simplicity of the drag system means very few pieces to break. There is also nothing more pleasant than the sound of a running fish fighting a click pawl drag system.
  • Easy Adjustable Right/Left Hand Retrieve – This reel is very easy to change the retrieve based on angler preference.
  • Heavy Bar Stock Aluminum – Heavy Bar Aluminum creates added durability without the extra weight.

Always have a backup

Always a good idea to have a backup reel with line handy. I own a complete set of them for each size.

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

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.
