Galvan’s small water trout reel, the Brookie, is perfect for backpacking high in the mountains or targeting trout in your backyard. The reel features a simplistic design with a minimalist drag system for fish that don’t require a reel with an over-the-top drag. The Brookie is lightweight, built with durable materials, and backed by Galvan’s lifetime warranty. If you’re in the market for a minimalist trout reel, this is one of the best on the market.



Small Water Design - The Brookie is designed to be a lightweight reel, perfect for small stream angling and trout applications. The reel’s simplistic Click-Ball Tension drag system and heavily ported frame make it one of the lightest in its class. Galvan’s use of 6061 aluminum also makes the Brookie incredibly durable. The Brookie, like all Galvan reels, is made in the USA.



Weatherproof Anodized Finish - The finish on the Brookie is made to protect the reel when it’s dropped or dinged. Anodizing is strong and durable for increased reel life and worry-free angling. Many major manufacturers use this finishing because of its lightweight makeup and rigid protection from the elements.



Machined 6061 Aluminum - The Brookie is built with machined 6061 Aluminum which has a few benefits. 6061 aluminum is both abrasion-resistant and corrosion-resistant. If you happen to drop or ding your reel, machined aluminum resists corrosion even when abraded. This type of aluminum is commonly used in aircraft and boat/automotive construction and contributes to the Brookie’s lightweight, durable build.



Type - The Brookie features Galvan’s Click-Ball Tension System that delivers customizable spool tension with minimal moving parts. This is an efficient departure from the traditional click-and-pawl drag system in that it allows a minimal amount of tension while still allowing the angler to utilize palming techniques to stop small freshwater fish.

Materials - The drag system on the Brookie is made with precision machining and durable stainless steel. The simplicity and versatility of this drag system contribute to the Brookie’s lightweight, high-performance build.


Arbor Size

Large Arbor - The large arbor of the Brookie increases line pickup and helps anglers fight the largest trout. Most contemporary fly reels are made with a large arbor design to allow anglers to pick up as much line as possible with as little work as possible.



Original Owner Lifetime Warranty - As of December 2019, all Galvan fly reels come with a lifetime warranty that covers all parts and workmanship under normal use conditions. The warranty provides that any Galvan reel will be repaired or replaced at no charge to the original owner. Repairs that don’t fall under the warranty start at $50 plus the cost of shipping.
