Product Description

Since 1976, this beauty has broken over 225 world records.  This anti-reverse reel is a work of art and built like a combination of an Army tank and a Swiss watch.  This is the only reel we recommend for surgeons, musicians, and the like since a screaming reel handle will likely break your fingers if your not careful- and put you out of work until they heal.  Can also be ordered with custom engraving- call the shop for details. (It looks amazing with the words “Redfish” and an engraved red.)

So the story goes, Billy Pate (a famous tarpon fisherman) kept coming into his local tackle shop with fly reels the tarpon kept destroying. One day, Ted “Tibor” Juracsik who worked on the same street, was in the shop when Mr. Pate was complaining.  He inspected the reel and offered to built Billy what would become one of the most iconic fly reels ever made.  We are all very glad he did.
