A good fly fishing reel is very hard to find these days…There are so many options out there on the market that people can get overwhelmed and not be able to find what they are looking for. When it comes to high end fly reels, I would choose my Solitude Reels over just about every other reel company around. I have put these reels to the test and have seriously put them through everything you could imagine from small stream trout to giant South Platte River carp. I now use the S2 and S3 as my main reels on the two rods I usually have with me during competitions and just free fishing.
