Hatch Fly Reel Review by Steve Schmidt

ImageThe Hatch Fly Reel company is a relatively new fly reel manufacturer that has risen to the top of premium fly reel companies in a short period of time.  I remember distinctly when I first came across this company; they only offered one very fine fly fishing reel.  That was unique for a new reel manufacturer: just one reel, one size, one color.   For several years  I followed this new innovative reel company and watched them mature.  Not long after learning of Hatch Reels I bought one.  It was the first non-Hardy trout reel I’ve ever owned and used since opening Western Rivers 28 years ago.  I was so impressed that shortly after that we brought them in to the shop even though my crew was somewhat hesitant because of their price.  That hesitancy didn’t last long, however.  Since then just about everyone in the shop now owns and fishes a Hatch Reel amd they have become our best selling premium fly reel.
