First Look: Ross Animas Fly Reels

A first look at new fly fishing products -

Ross Reels introduces the new Animas series of fly fishing reels.

Ross Animas Fly ReelsThe Animas River flows rough and wild through southwest Colorado. Like its namesake, the Ross Reels™ Animas® reel will keep running no matter what it faces. With a custom two-tone anodized finish and solid aluminum frame components, the reel is coupled with a liquid-smooth and powerful drag system with low start-up inertia.

The drag has a tool-less, simple right-to-left hand conversion and protects even the lightest tippet, vital when demanding quarry makes blistering, unexpected runs. The large arbor aids in retrieving all the line that just went through the tip-top.

The Animas fly reel is available in sizes 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 in both a stealth black finish or a granite metal finish.
