Miramichi Salmon reels are machined from aircraft quality 6061 T6 bar stock aluminum. Designed with a cage construction for a stronger, more durable reel that will stand up to abuse and deliver lightweight performance. An exposed rim allows easy palming of the reel. The multi-disk drag brake system is completely waterproof with sealed bearings, for reliability and virtually no maintenance. This generates a powerful and smooth drag with a confident feel that is bulletproof. The spools are wide with a small arbour design for more attractive appearance and the huge required line capacity for large switch rod lines and backing. Precision needle bearings on an alloy spindle for remarkably handling and stability. Our classic design is for freshwater river-run salmon and trout. The ‘clicking’ sound is audible when you reel in your line or when a fish takes your fly for a run. Finished with black counter-balanced S-handle, black side plates with satin silver frame and crossbars, all completely anodized. This reel is nice and evenly balanced for switch rods, M1 is for 4-6 wt or M2 for 7-9wt. Supplied with a neoprene pouch for protection during storage and on the rod transportation. Miramichi classic reels are built to take you freshwater salmon fishing on your favorite home waters for many memorable outings.
