Orvis Fly Reels

 

Orvis Mirage Fly Reels

A technologically superior reel conceived and designed from the ground up and built in New England by American craftsmen to battle angry fish and laugh in the face of corrosive saltwater environments.

The new Mirage features a sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system with an aggressive knurled drag knob that goes from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. Patent-pending ball and ramp drag mechanism provides a smooth turning drag that follows a non-linear curve as the drag knob is turned to give smoother adjustments in the fishing and fish-fighting range.

The reel is a super large arbor for increased retrieve rates and reduction in line coil.

Features:

  • Machined from strong, yet lightweight 6061 T6 aluminum barstock
  • Ergonomically designed machined aluminum handle
  • Quick release spool easily converts from left to right-hand retrieve
  • Military-spec type III hard coat anodizing
  • Titanium shaft adds strength without additional weight
  • Fully radiused reel foot prevents kinked leaders
  • Low-profile counterweight won't catch fingers or fly lines
  • Mirage VI comes in shallow and deep spool options for fastest line retrieval or maximum capacity
  • Made in the USA

Colours: Midnight (images 1, 2 & 4 above) or Pewter (images 3 & 4 above)

Orvis Mirage LT Fly Reels

There are times when less is more - the new Mirage LT fly reel is everything its big brother is, but designed to balance perfectly with lighter rods and yet still offer legendary Mirage engineering and performance.

Mirage LT reels feature a lighter version of the sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system that adjusts from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. With zero start-up inertia and precise low-end control it eliminates line shock and protects light tippets with the same silky smooth drag, and yet offers more stopping power than you will ever need for trout, bass, pike, musky, or carp.

30% lighter and 30% narrower, the Mirage LT is made in New Hampshire by the same skilled American craftsmen that build the Mirage. The LT offers the same increased retrieve rates, reduction in line coil, and is machined from the same strong, yet lightweight, 6061 T6 aluminum barstock as the Mirage.

Features:

  • Machined from strong, yet lightweight 6061 T6 aluminum barstock
  • Ergonomically designed, machined aluminum handle
  • Quick release spool easily converts from left to right-hand retrieve
  • Type II hard anodizing
  • Titanium shaft reduces weight and adds durable power transmission
  • Fully radiused reel foot prevents kinked leaders
  • Low-profile counterweight won't catch fingers or fly lines
  • Made in the USA

Colours: Midnight (images 1 & 2 above) or Olive (images 3 & 4 above)

Orvis Hydros Fly Reels

The new Orvis Hydros Reel is the result of our own desire to make something great, that much better.

We took a best-selling reel and removed unnecessary material to further reduce the weight while stiffening the narrow spool, which minimizes line stacking. We changed the drag knob to be more ergonomically accessible and comfortable to use. We further refined the seal on the sealed drag to protect the clutch bearing in the drag mechanism. We radiused the reel foot as on the Mirage for kink-free leader protection. The fully sealed drag with stacked carbon and stainless steel disc washers is still one of the strongest in the industry, with zero start-up inertia.

Matte type II anodized finish, standard large arbor size which balances better with lighter-weight fly rod, and yet still offers excellent retrieval rates and less line coiling than standard arbor reels. Refinement and improvement are the hallmarks of quality.

Features:

  • Refined, lighter weight large arbor fly reel
  • Improved fully-sealed drag clutch bearing
  • Radiused reel foot for kink-free leader protection
  • Ergonomically improved, easy to use drag knob
  • Zero start-up inertia
  • Excellent retrieval rates and less line coiling

Colours: Matte Black (images 1 & 2 above) or Matte Silver (images 3 & 4 above)
