Close Out Sale! All Metolius I reels 25% off till they are all gone!

Named after another famous river in our favorite fly fishing state of Oregon, our new Metolius Series reels will once again, not surprise anyone in quality, with their high-precision finish and smooth, silent operation! The Metolius I is a precision machined aluminum reel for 3 and 4 weight lines (3/4 stepped reel). FFB Metolius reels are crafted from the finest solid block T6061 aircraft aluminum. The reel comes in one finish (for the time being), which is Gold. Reel features include: Complete corrosion resistance, low-maintenance enclosed disc drag, one-way roller bearing, easy drag adjustment, counter-balanced spool, mid arbor design, quick change design for right/left-hand retrieve with our unique Silent Retrieve System and a high-precision machine cut body. We went a little farther in our Metolius than our Deschutes line by drilling the frame and spool to lighten the reel and offered a newer "Turbine" pattern for the spool.  The Metolius comes with a full-limited Warranty and a custom-fitted, black denier reel pouch embroidered with the FFB logo. The Metolius I Spool Diameter is 2.913 inches. The Arbor Size is 1.456 inches. The Spool Width is 0.866 inches. The reel weight is 4.714 ounces and the cubic volume of the reel is a mere 4.332 cubic inches. The Metolius I Fly Reel will hold approximately 30-40 yards of 20-pound braided backing, 40-50-yards of 10-pound braided fly line backing loaded by hand and 60-70 yards of gelspun or 10-pound backing loaded by winder.

For a short time, you can purchase a spare spool for an additional $25.

Great Buy
I was looking for a reel for a new small stream rod I purchased, and the "cause" behind, and look of Fly Fishing Benefactories products caught my attention.

I was amazed at the customer service, and, that service was backed up with an amazing product. The reel feels amazingly smooth in hand, with a drag that engages effortlessly. The machining is flawless and the color - GREAT!

I am very, very pleased with this investment, and know that the next time I need a reel, I will look here first... I LOVE my Metolius!
