You'll be impressed with the White River Fly Shop® Osprey Fly Reel. The cold-forged 6061 T6 aluminum frame and spool resist the inevitable bangs and scratches to assure a lifetime of performance. A mid-arbor design provides a great balance between backing capacity and rapid line pickup. A super-smooth, one-way bearing enables instant engagement of the maintenance-free composite drag. Elegant, hard-anodized Grey finish. Like its namesake, this reel is a "superb fisher'' in every respect.

Solid economy reel
This is my first saltwater reel and I paired it with a TFO Lefty Kreh 9' 9wt rod. I'm an experienced freshwater fly fisherman and have moved to an area with excellent saltwater fishing and very little freshwater trout fishing.
Over the last 2 1/2 years, I have landed over 100 stripers and blue fish up to 15 lbs. with this rod and reel. It is a very solid reel for anyone just getting in to saltwater fly fishing and will be my backup rod and reel when I purchase my next rig.
You will need to rinse the reel and grease it to combat salt and sand in the drag. It is a forged reel, so the engineering is not sufficient for bonefish or any other fish that runs, but it is good for in shore stripers, blues, and redfish.

Osprey fly reel
I won this reel in a fly fishing contest and swapped for my old reel. So far I am really pleased with the Osprey fly reel. I have easily handled some smaller redfish with it, and I am looking forward to tangling with a big bull red. It has a nice feel, great drag, and good action. I am going to buy an extra spool for it to have a second line loaded and ready - probably a sinking tip line.
