The White River Fly Shop Classic Ultra-Light Fly Reel is the perfect reel for your smallest fly rod. Although it measures less than 2.5" in diameter and weighs in at a mere 2.4 oz., this cold-forged machined jewel is surprisingly rugged. An English-style spring tension click pawl provides enough resistance to prevent overruns while still being lightweight and reliable. The White River Fly Shop Classic Ultra-Light Fly Reel features an anodized pewter color finish and rimmed spool. Ideal when paired with our exclusive Corland 10-meter double taper fly lines.
Bass Pro Shops’ exclusive Cortland 10-Meter Double Taper Fly Line sold separately and can be found through item search for item number 430-198-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fenwickfisherman Ultra-Light Fly Reel,
The perfect reel for my 1 wt. and 2 wt. fly rods. Many of my fishing friends are impressed with the quality of the reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by glraasch I just expected more then a toy
After waiting for a non-trackable order I received the (2) so called fly reels. I did not expect toy reels, but in my view that is what they are. Do not buy if you are really after a fly reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrDave951 Great little reel
I love this little reel! I use high-end Orvis reels on all my other fly rods, but I bought this reel for a little 2# rod that I built and really love it. Perfect balance for small rods, but great action for such a small reel. It lacks a disc drag, but hey, it's a small reel for a small rod! If you are expecting to be taken downstream by a lunker, you probably shouldn't be fishing with a ultralight reel in the first place! I would highly recommend this reel, and will put it on the next light rod I build for a friend.

Such a great ultra-light reel, balances my 2wt rod perfectly. Highly recommend it. The click and pawl drag performs perfectly. Don't worry about not having enough drag, should you hook into a big fish, palming the reel will provide more than enough pressure to slow it down. Drag is a little bit noisy however but is only a slight inconvenience
