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.

      Lucky Day - 7/14/2015
      By: from Missoula, MT

      I bought this reel and took down 5 of my first big Cutthroats!! It must have been a lucky day or a lucky reel. I enjoyed everything about the new reel including the ease of use, and the look and feel. Great product.

      Access Mid Arbor Reel - 7/1/2015
      By: from Seattle, WA

      Bought one of these and an extra spool in gold. On purchase, in the shop while changing the retrieve, the bearings popped out. I should have been warned by that! Sometime later discovered that the spool had a separation in the frame. Gold no longer being made, no receipt so the 100% satisfaction guarantee means a gift card at the lowest sale price. Ugh! Next reel will be a different brand.

      Wonderful feel - 6/29/2015
      By: from Bainbridge Island, WA

      I got one of these with my Recon Setup. it really is a nice reel and having the seeled bearing is important in the salt where i'm using it. It reminds me of my battenkill III only with the sealed bearings. this is a no nonsense product that i will be buying for my other rods.

      Built like a tank - 6/10/2015
      By: from Texarkana ar

      First off I am fairly new to the world of fly fishing. However this thing is awesome. The drag is nice and works on big pond bass, though its not really necessary for those fish. It is smooth and feels great. Also I recently was involved in a rather terrible car accident that involved the vehicle rolling and I found this reel thirty feet from the car and it appears to work fine the feel is unimpeded and the drag system works great still. Gotta hand it to orvis for providing a superior product at a reasonable price.

      Great Reel - 6/2/2015
      By: from Billings, MT

      Purchased this reel to go with a Clearwater 5wt that I received as a gift. The helpful staff on Orvis chat suggested this reel after asking me about my needs and what and where I fished. Couldn't be happier with the reel it performed flawlessly and the titanium color looks great paired with the Clearwater rod.

      Great Reel - 5/26/2015

      I chose this reel because of the numbering for the drag. It helps me remember where to set the drag. It works perfect with my Recon Rod.
