    Default Click and Pawl Fly Reels

    Paula or Bryon, I was wondering if LRO carries any click and pawl fly reels? Redington carries them, but I do not see where you sell them. For my taste, just about all of the other disc drag reels are too heavy. Thanks. LRPop

    Check out the Abel trout series or the creek series and I believe orvis still carries click and pawl. I am looking at the creek series abel to put on a 3wt sage zxl now.

    flyred06, I do not believe that Orvis sells any click and pawl fly reels anymore. They used to, but not any more. Abel reels are way out of my league. I am looking for one under a $ 100.00. Redington sells one for $ 99.00. My first click and pawl fly reel was a Martin Model 60 (tuna can reel) that cost me a whopping $ 1.99 at JC Penney back when they had sporting goods departments. Still have this cheap reel and she stills sings a pretty song. Courtland came out with one, but it is very expensive. I have several others, but you know how it is. You never have enough. Thanks.

    Heavynets, that one is a disc drag reel. Too heavy for my taste. Looking for a simple click and pawl fly reel like they used to make back in the good old days. They never give you any trouble. LRPop (Auburn, Alabama)

    Sorry about that. I just did a quick Google search and forwarded one of the findings without reading it. The page contained the words "click and pawl", but had nothing to do with the reel being sold.

    Personally, I HATE the sound of any clicker on my reels and have never had trouble with any drag system. I usually only have them engaged enough to prevent freewheeling. My palm does the rest.

    Pflueger Medalist. I have one that is about 49 years old. It's on a 49 YO fiberglass South Bend rod. Still fish them for ol' time's sake.

    Knothead, yes, I have a Medalist model 1492 (the small one) and I like it alot, but I am looking to upgrade somewhat. Would like to keep it under $ 100.00 if you know what I mean. But, I may purchase another Medalist since my 1492 is so good. They sell for about $ 24.95 from Cabelas. Thanks. LRPop (Auburn, Alabama)

    I know you are wanting a click and pawl, but if weight is an issue you should consider the Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock Reels. They are extremely lightweight and still have a good disk drag system...

    Look for an old Young or Heddon Imperial125 the Youngs on Ebay are not to expensive while the Heddon's go for about $100.00.

    One of the best places to find out information on old reels go to http://www.fiberglassflyrodders.com
