Access Mid-Arbor Reels

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


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. 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 reel value in the industry.

      Solid All-Around Performer - 4/15/2015

      Met all expectations! Great build quality, performance and appearance for the price. The only gripe I had was the shipping time due to item being on back-order.

      I purchased the Access Mid-Arbor Reel to be used on my handmade Bamboo rod. Together, they will become a family heirloom.

      Awesome reel - 4/7/2015
      By: from Gillette Wyoming

      I have had the same Orvis reel for twenty years and felt it was time to upgrade. This reel is wonderful. Such a difference from what I had been using. Makes me realize I should have upgraded long ago. Caught four rainbow the first time I used it, the larges of which was 12lbs plus. I set the drag and it worked to perfection. Would have never landed this fish on the old reel. Great purchase.

      I haven't had a chance to get out and enjoy my new reel but the quality feels and looks great. Matches my gold reel seat on my fly rod perfectly! The Access III is small, solid, light weight, has a sealed drag, you can't ask for much more. Customer service is also top notch!

      By: from Washington, DC

      I looked all around for a reel of this quality, and the Access Mid-Arbor was the best value hands down. Great feel, fit and finish. Well constructed. Can't go wrong with the quality and price.
