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.

      I've only had this a couple of weeks, but so far seems to work well with my new Orvis 5 weight.

      Best buy in a lightweight fly reel - 10/31/2014
      By: from Western New York

      The Battenkill 1 fly reel is the perfect match for my new Superfine Touch 3 wt. rod. I know it will be the perfect outfit for brook trout fishing in Potter County Pennsylvania.

      Added this to arsenal as a backup to my access reel for trout. Not had to use it too many times, but has performed great so far. I would highly recommend this to someone who fishes small streams, smaller fish. This is my go to reel for Smokey Mountain streams.

      GREAT REEL - 10/13/2014
      By: from Las Vegas, NV

      My Battenkill is a great reel. Even though it is not a CFO, which is a greater reel, it's a good size and weight and has a nice sound when line is being ripped off it. i still love my CFO reels , but they cost substantially more.

      Perfect small reel - 10/7/2014

      Came ready to use with excellent winding. This reel has been smooth and perfect so far. Easy retrieval for a lefty.

      Solid Simple reel - 8/29/2014

      I've used a Battenkill II reel for several years, so I bought another one for my new 5 weight rod. I like the simplicity and classic design. Nothing more is needed in a fly reel.
