Carpenter Bros. Fly Reels

Cris Carpenter of Carpenter Bros. Bamboo Fly Rods is offering fly reels that not only compliment the bamboo fly rods that he is building but also available for anyone that is looking to add a classic styled fly reel for their collection.  

Cris wrote...  "These fly reels are made of aluminum frames and delrin side plates.  They have a nice dark champagne gold anodized finish with a fixed classic click-n-pawl drag.  They are available in either LHW or RHW.  These fly reels are 2.85 inches in diameter with a spool width that is 1.18 inches wide and weighs a modest 5.05 ounces."

"This is a collaboration between myself and John Paullus.  John has been working on making a replica of the classic Phillbrook marbelized reels and is almost done.  One nice feature about the Carpenter Bros. reels is that the owner can have their name engraved on the reel for a small fee.  Right now I am giving away a free t-shirt to anyone that buys one.  The price is $475 and also includes a custom made leather "hitchhiker" case for the reel."

Cris Carpenter can be reached through email if you have any questions or inquires regarding these fly reels or his excellent bamboo builds as well.

I have a secret passion for fly fishing gear, and more specifically fly reels. I have no explanation as to why, it's just the way it is. Showing some amazing looking reels has me drooling at the computer - and that is not good!!!
