Battenkill Fly Reels

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

Details

Now available in well-balanced sizes IV and V for Spey rods. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great match with 4wt rod! Using with 4wt rod. Very light and balances well with the light weight rod. No need for drag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool reel Love this reel. Loaded it with 3 WT line. Thinking I may need a couple more for 4 WT and 5 WT. the clicking sound is way cool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic look and feel Ordered the Battenkill III for my 4 wt DT Hydros line. The III is a slight bit larger than the II and a DT line fits much better. Great reel with a classic look and very affordable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battenkill Reel Again, another example of quality Orvis products! Love the weight of the reel, the size and the way the Access line loads and shoots!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent Reel I love Orvis products, so this was difficult for me. The reel looks nice and feels of quality, I'm not arguing that. It just sounds horrible, some people prefer the old click sound. This reel sounds like a loud duck call. Also, and more importantly, since this has a traditional standard arbor I've had many issues with line memory. My superfine 2wt line would not straighten out no matter what I tried. It was so coiled the line was getting stuck at the stripping guide with only 15 ft or so out. It cost me a lot of fish. I have since purchased a large arbor click reel which fixed the issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around Well constructed light weight reel. I have a BattenKill 2 on my 4wt and a BattenKill 3 on my 5 weight. I love the click and pawl drag system for trout, it allows me the control. Strips line out easily and cleans up well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely, but noisy reel These are great reels - simple, small, lightweight and no flash from shiny surfaces. But this latest version is too noisy ! I hate reels that make such a racket they disturb the peaceful quietness of fly-fishing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best buy for traditionalists Those flyfishers looking for a more "traditional" look and feel to their fly reels will do themselves a favor purchasing the Battenkill Reels. They've been around forever, but Orvis just keeps making them better ... and still at a most reasonable price.
