Cheeky Reels is a relatively new company. Built in 2009 by four friends, Cheeky struggled through prototyping, research, and development in their early years. We’re sure glad they did. In 2011, Cheeky launched their first reel. From the outset, Cheeky set out to be different than the rest. The company was founded on a desire to create colorful reel aesthetics and a reel that outperformed the rest. Their first reel was bright yellow and blue, a victory in their first mission. But the fly fishing world quickly realized that Cheeky had, in fact, also created a reel that pushed industry innovation. Over the last few years, Cheeky has produced a variety of reel models that reflect their mission. The company has also grown in popularity over the last few years and now has a pretty substantial following. Despite the company’s growth, however, Cheeky continues to maintain their original mission to design and manufacture the finest and flashiest reels on the market.
