Solitude 2 Fly Reel Reviews
When choosing my fly reel I searched for a quality one made in the USA. My search led me to a small company called Solitude Reels. Located in Seattle, they have been making a quality, proven reel that can withstand the rigors of fighting Steelhead and had to be tough enough to handle anything that I could possibly throw at it, and it has. ~ Texas Fly Fishing Adventures
Designed for 4-5-6 lines, the Solitude II is perfect for western rivers, large spring creeks or chasing Alaskan rainbows. Use of crest- to- crest wave spring in the drag allows for a near-infinite range of settings. The fine, silky-smooth drag system helps protect light tippets and delivers even, consistent pressure during demanding runs. Made from fully machined 6061-T651 aluminum.
