CFO Disc Drag Fly Fishing Extra Spool

This fly reel's look and feel is reminiscent of vintage fly fishing reels.

Details

The CFO fly fishing reel has been the choice of technical fly fisherman since 1971. Reengineered to be lighter, smoother, and tougher. Although this fly fishing reel is machined using the most modern of materials and state-of-the-art machining technology, the CFO disc drag fly reel is a reverent nod to fly fishing tradition. The reel's signature look and sound are synonymous for thousands of fly fisherman with great moments on the water. It matches as perfectly in spirit, looks and performance with Orvis Superfine or bamboo fly rods as it does with our high-tech Helios fly rods.

  • CFO I for line weights 1-3, 3.6 oz., 2¾" diameter.

      Wrong Colour! - 8/8/2015
      By: from Bristol UK

      Clearly Orvis have changed the colour of the CFO reel durinng production runs. This spool did not match the colour of my CFO reel so I returned it. Woild be nice if Orvis could be a bit more precise about specifications.

      Both the photo and the description of this item were very unclear so I had to return it as soon as it arrived. Not at all pleased.

      Music to you ears! - 4/22/2014
      By: from Argentina

      I bought the CFO II a few days ago and I premiered in Rio Malleo (Argentina) is a river where you fishing much with dry flies. I used an Orvis T3 # 2 and the sound it get when a trout takes line is music to the ears! I recommend it for all who like classic reel formats.

      Perfect match - 4/14/2014
      By: from Bradenton, Fl

      i had a 7 1/2 foot bamboo Battenkill and no reel, until i purchased this reel. it is a perfect match and unlike the original CFO reel that would have been with the reel it has a working disc drag not just a clicker drag. i am very pleased with both performance and appearance.

      Best small trout reel on the market - 4/11/2014
      By: from Omaha, NE

      If you enjoy small stream trout fishing, you have to get this reel. I already had one which I purchased along with a Superfine rod last year. The combination makes fishing for small, illusive mountain trout an experience one remembers for a lifetime. The play, the feel, the sound...fly fishing at its most basic best. A 12 inch, one pound brown or cutthroat feel and act like one of the "big boys"! A truly one with nature experience when he grabs your homemade fly and fights to get away. I bought this spare reel when I saw Orvis was discontinuing the CFO for a new style CFO...probably will never need a second reel but just in case! I hope the new style is comparable with the old so more people can enjoy the thrill! Fantastic reel...thanks Orvis!

      There's a reason, - 3/29/2014
      By: from Ft. Collins, Colorado

      There's a reason I've bought several CFO reels in the past and this purchase is no different. They work, period. I'll be fishing it today on a Northern Colorado river and expect it to perform just like the others. Looking forward to purchasing one of the new US made reels soon. Well done, and thanks.
