We’ve used this workhorse surf fishing in So Cal, light steelheading in Oregon, chucking nasty streamers to ravenous browns in Montana, and stalking bones on the flats in Belize.
When Hatch Reels created a high-end fly reel without a cork drag, people thought they were crazy. Today, it seems like they were geniuses. Hatch reels were created to be completely uncompromising in quality.
All Hatch reels are designed with the same buttery smooth stacked disc drag system. This system employs multiple discs of stainless steel and Rulon which dramatically increases the surface area. In turn this makes for virtually no start up inertia and massive stopping power. By virtue of the fact that it's sealed, all Hatch fly reels require no lubrication or maintenance.
