Battenkill Reel

Control your fish by palming this classic click pawl fly reel.


Simple design and flawless construction make this the perfect click-and-pawl fly reel for nearly any freshwater fishing situation. A minimalist's dream, the all-new Battenkill features a classically styled, yet technically enhanced, four-position click-and-pawl drag system that is adjusted internally and is designed to work in tandem with the palm of your hand on those sizzling, screaming runs. Constructed with a narrow spool for less line stacking on retrieve and a larger spool diameter for higher line retrieval rates. The ultra-lightweight fly reel design balances perfectly on shorter rods. Machined from heavy-duty bar-stock aluminium for added durability. Easily adjustable left- or right-hand retrieve. Highlighted by laser-engraved logos. In black nickel. Imported.

  • Battenkill I for line weights 1-3, 2.8 oz., 2¾" diameter.
  • Battenkill II for line weights 3-5, 2.9 oz., 3" diameter.
  • Battenkill III for line weights 5-7, 3.2 oz., 3¼" diameter.

      Excellence in simplicity - 7/28/2014

      Very nice classic design and well built. The reel sounds great with a running trout taking line. This reel adds good balance to my rod making all day casting a joy, just the right weight.

      I purchased the Battenkill I reel and a 2 wt. Superfine Trout line for use with my 2 weight small creek rod. The reel came handed for left hand and backed and loaded with line. This setup is perfect for my little 2 wt rod, casts for distance and touch and is a great color for clear water situations and floats high. I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
