Notes on the Ross Colorado LT reel

News and Notes from

The Ross Colorado LT reel is beautiful.

I’m sure you’ve seen it, drooled it over it, and maybe even purchased it. The Ross Colorado LT is a beautiful piece of aluminum, large arbor fly fishing goodness:

I don’t normally get all excited about fly fishing gear, but the Colorado LT is an exception. It takes modern design to a new level, and puts Ross back on the map in terms of fly fishing reels.┬áIt also just won the Best Freshwater Reel award at the 2016 IFTD New Product Showcase.

This is clearly a form over function play on fly fishing reels, although I’ve heard that the performance of this reel matches the looks. The simplicity of the reel is amazing, with just 15 parts making up the entire reel. I’d honestly probably never buy it, but I’m glad to see Ross putting in the time and effort to create something different.

It’s beautiful, and has a surprisingly decent price tag on it at $285. Check it out over on the Ross Reels website.
