Orvis Mirage Reel


HEADHUNTERS SAYS Some folks say this is the best reel on the market. Some of us agree. The new Made in the USA Orvis Mirage has an incredible drag, powerful yet smooth at those low dry fly settings. The machine work is superb, as is the balance. This is a lifetime fly reel that you will pass on down. Absolutely one of our favorite trout spey reels. We use the size II on our 5 and 6 weight trout rods, and the size III on our 7 weight streamer rods, as well as trout spey rigs. For those looking for a lighter build, we highly recommend the equally capable Mirage LT.

A technologically superior reel conceived and designed from the ground up and built in New England by American craftsmen to battle angry fish and laugh in the face of corrosive saltwater environments. The Mirage features a sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system with an aggressive knurled drag knob that goes from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. Patent-pending ball and ramp drag mechanism provides a smooth turning drag that follows a non-linear curve as the drag knob is turned to give smoother adjustments in the fishing and fish-fighting range. The reel is a super large arbor for increased retrieve rates and reduction in line coil. Machined in the USA from strong, yet lightweight 6061 T6 aluminum barstock. Ergonomically designed machined aluminum handle. Quick release spool easily converts from left to right-hand retrieve. Military-spec type III hard coat anodizing. Titanium shaft adds strength without additional weight. Fully radiused reel foot prevents kinked leaders. Low-profile counterweight won’t catch fingers or fly lines. In pewter, midnight black.
