I'd Kill for a Battenkill

Orvis rods are awesome, we all know that already, but they also make great reels. to compliment my Henry's Fork, i chose to get the Battenkill original. this is the best selling reel ever and after using it for all these year, i know exactly why. doesn't matter what backing, what line or tippet i've put into it, the action is smooth as ever. for those unfamiliar with fly fishing, there's just so much to learn that i can not explain in one single article. but think of it as a fight with the fish and the reel is your weapon together with the rod and lines. in fly fishing, you can not have a locking reel like in spin fishing or deep sea fishing, because the tippet is so light that a sudden pull against a swimming fish will result in a broken line. so the importance of the reel is to keep a consistent drag on the line without overly resisting the line from going out. fly fishing is such a wonderful skill and when mastered the art is second to none. this reel in particular has managed to stay in perfect shape over the past decade and i still go back to it each time i take my rod out of the closet. the adjustable drag, the click (which can be turned off), the smooth rolling action and the pure traditional looks make this reel my weapon of choice.
