Lamson® Guru™ Fly Reels
Got 4- love 'em
I have 4 Lamson Guru reels and I love them. They are fairly wide so your drag doesn't change too much as you cast a lot of line. The drag seems to work well on all the fish I have caught on them (8/9 wts.). The drag knob is not as easy to use as some other reels because of its chunky design. Several guides I know think Lamsons are the best deal going and I can't argue. They have held up well for several years and have caught some nice fish. I may have to buy another one or two soon when I get a new rod or even two.

I bought this real to replace my first fly fishing rod/reel combo after i realized how much i enjoy fly fishing. Easy to clean and separate spool from housing when i use it in saltwater. I've caught anything from half pound sunfish to 10 lb redfish and this reel preformed flawlessly for both. The drag is precise enough for panfish and strong enough for a bullish redfish run. The lettering on the reel is starting to rub off but i could honestly care less because it means its being used. Paired with the lefty kreigh TFO 8wt rod.

Great reel just like my other Lamson reels. Have already handled some nice smallmouth and the reel functioned flawlessly. Very nice looking beefy large arbor reel looks great on the rod.

i have the 8wt reel that i use on flats. the drag is so nice and smooth. caught a giant lady fish and I'm telling you this reel handled it. one day my drag won't engage and found out that theres a crack on the clutch ring. i called lamson and they send me not just one but two new clutch ring. no question asked
