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.

      Best reel on the market for the money - 3/11/2014
      By: from Danville California

      This is my second access reel. I'm very hard on my fishing gear due to extreme fishing conditions. It offers everything you could ask for, looks ,durability and longevity. I've recommended this reel every chance I get.

      Lightweight and easy treating - 2/26/2014
      By: from Ibaragi, JP

      This reel weight was light although it has enough capacity. I purchased first one Reel(G), and felt good treating reel so same type of 2nd reel was purchased as another color option(T). Probably I will order another same one soon.

      Beautiful reel, great service - 2/8/2014
      By: from Canada-UK

      I wanted to take up an activity with my 9 year old son, that we could learn together. I purchased him the encounter outfit and I ordered the titanium access reel. It looks fantastic and sounds great, I can't wait to use it on my return to the UK. The build quality looks impressive. I wanted to buy a reel that would last and see me through my early stages of fly fishing and beyond. I did have the reel personalized to commemorate my departure from my current military unit and was left disappointed. The text was a little small and due to its size didn't look very clear and the text was off centre. Orvis customer service is very good and have offered me a full refund or change of reel if I wish. Not sure what I will do, but no doubt will enjoy using it when I return to the UK.

      good as gold - 2/7/2014
      By: from South Jersey

      Got the gold IV and use it on a 7'11 bass rod. Handles freshwater very well, i use it in my kayak with the short rod and its deadly. Great all around reel havent had any problems with orvis yet.

      Good Reel for my Rod - 1/26/2014
      By: from Danielson, CT

      My first fly rod was a 5wt Access with an Access III reel. I have caught many Trout on this combo, from the Battenkill to rivers and steams in CT/RI the reel has always performed flawlessly. This year I will be purchasing a Rod/Reel Combo for Striper Fishing, I'm going with the sister set up of my freshwater combo, a Access 9wt rod with an Access V Reel.

      Affordable, rugged, classic looking reel that easily takes lovers of the Battenkill to a mid-arbor reel.
