The Cascapedia is back! Hardy has reintroduced some classic reels for 2020 and the Cascapedia is one of them. This is a Spey angler’s dream reel with an improved disc drag system in the larger reel models for big Atlantic Salmon or Large Steelhead and the classic click-check drag for those who prefer an old-fashioned reel on the smaller models. The S-shaped handle gives the reel a groovy feel and the indent calibrated drag adjustment keeps your drag right where you want it on the water. This is (another) reel for the ages from Hardy!



Classic Aesthetics - The Cascapedia was designed to be a classic reel. With traditional reel features including a click-check drag on the smaller sizes, a classic s-shaped reel handle, and a traditional arbor size, this reel is geared toward the angler who prefers a classic aesthetic. Beautiful craftsmanship and parts that are hand-made make this reel a true work of art.



CNC Machined, Hand-Polished Finish - The Cascapedia is fully machined and hand-polished for increased durability. Polishing finishes the bar stock aluminum in a durable finish and holds up well when dropped or dinged. This is a bulky reel that’s well-finished for a classic aesthetic and a durable build.



Bar Stock Aluminum - The Cascapedia is forged from bar stock aluminum for a lightweight, rugged design that holds up to anything the angler throws at it. Bar stock aluminum is popular in the fly fishing industry because of its strong, resilient nature.



Type - The two smaller reel sizes of the Cascapedia feature click-check drag systems with an original sound for anglers who prefer a sporty, classic reel. The larger sizes feature a disc drag and a built-in audible clicker for a classic ratchet sound and contemporary fish-fighting drag that’s ideal for larger Salmon/Steelhead.

Materials - The disc drag on the larger reels is made with carbon fiber discs for increased durability and smooth drag performance. The click-check system is made with titanium components for solid durability on the water.


Arbor Size

Traditional Arbor - The Cascapedia has a traditional arbor, much different than many contemporary fly reels. This traditional arbor allows anglers to add backing or running line to the reel without worrying about overfilling it. The reel’s traditional arbor also accommodates thicker Spey and Switch fly lines for increased two-handed performance.



Hardy Limited Warranty - As of August 2020, Hardy warrants that their reels will be free from material defects in design, material, and workmanship for a period of 5 years from the date on which it was originally purchased. The warranty, like many others, doesn’t cover damage from misuse, negligence, or wear and tear. Hardy does repair reels. The service fee is $35 plus replacement parts for repair.
