I doubt there are too many $30 fly reels on the market holding 6 current or retired records in the IGFA book.

The White River Fly Shops brand name is synonymous with quality, and it only gets better with each new product made. 

 

As the product states, it is the best fly reel you can buy for under $30 - and that's no joke.  I doubt there are too many $30 fly reels on the market holding 6 current or retired records in the IGFA book.   That on its own is an astounding achievement for any fly reel, let alone one as affordable as this. It's no doubt that such a popular and well-designed reel such as this comes from the famed White River Fly Shops.

 

You probably know what I'm talking about when I say that some equipment just works.  Everything seems to fit together perfectly and it seems like the laws of physics seem to favor the gear - well, this is one of those.  It doesn't seem to matter why type of product it is either, sometimes it can be an inexpensive pocketknife that performs like a chainsaw or a $30 fly reel that performs like no other and claims 6 records. 

 

The construction of the reel leaves nothing to be desired. It has a rugged all-metal construction, disc drag, and rimmed, counterbalanced spool rounds out a list of features common to much more expensive reels. No other reel compares to this simple, tough, and efficient design this one boasts.

 

I think the product info says it the best - "Just because you're on a budget, it doesn't mean you have to fish with junk."

 

Whether this reel is your go-to fish getter, part of your first fly outfit, or a backup reel, the Dogwood Canyon will deliver years of smooth, trouble-free performance at a price that's nearly impossible to beat with the same quality.
