Winston Air II rods can do most anything present tiny dry flies to wary trout on flat water, cast a heavy streamer to the far bank in the wind, launch the entire line when you need it, and make quick, accurate close-range shots.

Angler's Lane Combos - Comparison of Fly Reels - Gold Freshwater

Lamson Guru S

Lamson Guru S

  • Standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged
  • Fully USA-machined, ultra-reliable reel
  • Larger diameter, narrower spool, decreased weight than its previous Gurus
  • Added a curved cross-section for structural stability.
  • 6061-T6 proprietary aluminum alloy frame -- strong yet light
  • Space-age Delrin 500AF polymer Drag Material is durable, heat resistant, self-lubricating and maintenance free
  • Hard alox finish for balance of hardness and color
  • Ergonomic drag knob

Angler's Lane Commentary:
Extremely durable reel. Great reel for any freshwater and most any saltwater situations. We love the Guru S reels which are outstanding in freshwater situations. Made in USA.

Orvis Mirage LT

Orvis Mirage LT

  • Designed to balance perfectly with lighter freshwater rods
  • Zero start-up inertia and precise low-end control protects light tippets
  • Lighter version of the sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag
  • Adjusts from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation
  • 30% lighter and 30% narrower than Mirage
  • Excellent for trout, bass, pike, musky, or carp
  • Strong, yet lightweight, 6061 T6 aluminum
  • Type II anodizing
  • Quick-release spool easily converts from left- to right-hand retrieve
  • made in USA (New Hampshire)

Angler's Lane Commentary:
Orvis has a winner in the Mirage LT reel. Lightweight, smooth yet strong drag system. Excellent match for a premium fly rod combo. Made in USA.

 

Lamson Litespeed F

Lamson Litespeed F (Freshwater)
  • CNC machined with material distributed artfully along critical load paths
  • stable and strong, extremely light
  • drag system creates a linear progression of torque with very fine resolution at the light end of its range
  • spool and frame architecture is super-arbor in scale for high retrieve, but spare and open to promote line drying and, of course, reduce weight
  • Ultra Large Arbor Format
  • Lightest yet largest diameter Litespeed to date
  • Space frame construction - Exceptional Strength-to-Weight Ratio
  • Re-engineered seals - Enhanced reliability and waterproofing
  • Indexing click drag knob

Angler's Lane Commentary:
Lamson ranks as a consistent innovator of fly reels. The Litespeed F (Freshwater) represents the finest in fly reel arcitecture and function. With a light, yet durable frame the drag is always consistent. Our guides have been using Litespeeds since 2000 and each generation represents an improvement, this 2021 version is second to none among our favorites!
