Make your own Custom Fly Reel with River Traditions

Make your own Custom Fly Reel with River Traditions

I really try to make it simple to make your very own Custom Fly Reel.

The process is simple, select from 3 sizes:

  • 3/4 weight – great for avaerage size trout, small bass and most “pond” sunfish.
  • 5/6 weight – A good all around reel to fit 80% of your trypical fish.
  • 7/8 weight – A little bigger for steelhead, large trout and smaller salmon.

Once you select a reel size the fun really begins.  You get to make a Custom Fly Reel!  Just type a name, quote, event or even the type of fish your targeting into the input box.  Lastly complete the payment processing and usually you will have your reel in about 5 days!

Customized Fly Reel

I sell these custom fly reels for a fraction of what other fly shops.  Your price is $65 to $85 depending on the size.  I’ve seen the SAME reel sold for over $130 and this doesn’t include customizing.  Check out the HIGH PRICED reels HERE.

Now a little bit about the fly reel.  It is a mid-arbor, which I consider the best arbor size.  You get the benefit of a fast retrieve like a large arbor with the line capacity of a small arbor.   The reel is anodized aluminum with a fully adjustable disc drag.  It easily converts from left to right with video instructions ->  CONVERT REEL

I have been fishing with the exact reel for 8 years, and have never been disappointed with the performance of this reel.  Trout, salmon and bluegill have been netted with this reel, but if needed I have parts for repair.

I thought it would be cool to see how easy it is to make this custom fly reel with a quick video.

I am proud to be a small business that can offer individual attention to every order.  Thanks and Tight Lines!
