Tibor Billy Pate Fly Reel

1976 was a hallmark year for the fly fishing world. It was then that Ted Juracsik introduced his first Anti-Reverse Tarpon Reel designated the Billy Pate. This series now includes three Anti-Reverse models, for rod weights 6-12. No other reel has matched the Billy Pate's durability and dependability day in day out, year after year, regardless of conditions, locale or species. This precision piece of equipment is designed and constructed to withstand the most demanding fly fishing environments. As with all reels that leave Ted's shop, the Billy Pate is virtually maintenance free. While there are over 225 World Records that attest to its performance, you don't have to be interested in records to appreciate this reel. If you know your fly fishing history, you know this is the reel that set the hook.

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

Tibor Billy Pate Fly Reel Reviews

Great reel Review by Justin
Posted on 4/1/15
Purchased the "Salmon"model and am very pleased. Smooth drag and solid build are exactly what I was wanting and received. Using the reel for carp and was worried it my be to much reel. Until I hooked up on one and it took me for ride. Perfect smooth drag worked like a fine watch. Lost fish but was stoked. Love the anti-reverse.
A Beast! Review by Michael

I bought the Tarpon model for a 2-day tuna trip out of San Diego. Listening to the reel sing as the yellow fin went on a run or two brought a smile to my face. These were football-size YFT (15 - 25 lbs) and they were no match for the drag system. A great reel. Best advice I got was to clean it with fresh water after the trip for long years of service. Tarpon are next on the list.
