Access Mid-Arbor Reels

Our Access mid-arbor fly fishing reels are sure to impress any angler.

Details

The new Access Mid-Arbor fly fishing reels take the mid-arbor concept to a new level of performance and do it at a price that makes it accessible to everyone. Starting at just $145, the Access Reel Series offers a full-range of performance features from machined 6061 aircraft aluminum to a totally sealed carbon and stainless-steel drag surface. From the diminutive I to the big-game V, the Access offers the angler the benefits of large arbor; faster retrieve, less coiling, but at a diameter size that isn't quite as overwhelming as some large arbors. With a new larger handle, positive click drag adjustment, and three bold colors, the Access fly fishing reels are the best dollar for dollar reel value in the industry. Imported.

      Access II gold - 7/21/2014
      By: from England

      I bought this for my #4 7'2" split cane rod, and it balances the rod perfectly. The drag is excellent, and has really made my set up perfect

      Great Reel - 7/18/2014
      By: from Northern New Mexico/So. Colorado

      Looks great, works perfect, excellent size, easy to use drag control, light weight, and high quality. Hard to beat this reel for the money or even for a couple hundred dollars more. What more can I say, I Love It! Plus the Orvis Lifetime Guarantee!! How can you beat all that!

      Access to Excellence - 7/1/2014
      By: from Summit, NJ

      What a charming reel! Light weight and a superb drag system. I purchased mine in gold and had my name engraved also. I paired this reel with the Orvis superfine hydros 5wt line and for a mid arbour, it looks and feels fantastic. It also has a very fine tuned drag system for any circumstance you'll need. If you're looking for beauty and durability, then the Access is for you. -Brian

      Best reel I've ever had! - 6/20/2014
      By: from Scotland

      I got the access ii to hold a 5WT line. I use this reel for river fishing and loch fishing when the wind isn't too crazy (I'm in Scotland). The reel is lightweight and the drag is fantastic. I've landed big brown trout, with every confidence in the smooth drag. The numbering system is a good feature, so you know which number suits various tippet strengths. It's very durable, I have bashed it on riverbeds submerged it when changing flies, and dropped it with no damage. I will be getting the iv size soon for salmon fishing. Great reel at a great price!!

      Orvis Access Mid Arbor III Reel is a winner - 5/28/2014
      By: from Aurora, CO

      I have the Orvis Access fly reel set up with the Orvis Access Trout 5 wt fly line and they work well together. The drag is easy to adjust and swapping spools is a snap. This reel balances well with both of my 5 wt rods and it looks great. I liked it so well I gave another as a gift and now my friend out fishes me! Good value in a very nice reel.

      reel / line combo - 5/9/2014
      By: from Nashua, N.H.

      The mid- arbor reel and matching line in 3wt. does a supurb job on the matched rod i used on a Maine trout trip recently. The drag was very excessable and ease to control while bringing fish to net. I really enjoy the matched line and backing purchased when i bought the reel. Orvis did a great job applying these components. They worked out great. Thanks Russ

      Great buy - 5/7/2014
      By: from Austin texas

      This is a great reel for any type of fly fishing. It's mid arbor size is great, not to big like large arbors but still big enough to get the fish in quick.

      Very easy to see the high quality and attention to detail that comes with this reel. I am in manufacturing and when I hear the reel work it is a credit to its design and the manufacturing process.
