Ross Flystart Fly Reel
The Flystart is a large arbor fly reel that is affordably priced, yet built with the same commitment to quality and performance as all Ross reels. The gear-to-gear drag is a low maintenance, high performance system that is dependable, smooth and has a wide range of adjustment. And don't be fooled by the price. This reel is everything a budget-minded angler needs to land the fish of a lifetime. The Flystart series is coated with our proprietary AGP finish. This coating is incredibly strong and substantially more durable than any finish applied to competitive reels. The Flystart is a great reel for the first-time fly fishing participant that demands quality, but does not want to spend a fortune gearing up to fish.

Please note: backing can add 3-5 days to the shipping estimate.

Great for a beginner Review by David
If you want a solid trout reel without spending the money, this reel will do it for you. It was my first fly reel and I used it exclusively trout fishing for four years and never had a problem. However, over the years and use I have noticed the drag weakening a little due to the use of plastics in the drag. Despite the plastic, the reel works pretty well. If you don't want to spend money on a reel, this reel will handle all your trout fishing needs no problem. Posted on 8/19/15
