Anglers Of The Au Sable Fly Reel

Chris Reister of Willow Classic Reels sent along information recently of a special edition fly reel that he helped create for the 25th Anniversary of Anglers of the Au Sable.

Chris wrote...  "Since you are originally from Michigan, I know you are aware of the organization Rusty Gates along with several others founded called Anglers of the Au Sable.  Well this past Trout Opener was the 25th Anniversary celebration.  I was not able to attend as I had other personal commitments but I was told the banquet was a huge success and raised a lot of money for this very worthwhile cause.  Anglers of the Au Sable is about protecting our local cold water resources, namely the Au Sable River and the Manistee River.  Both of which are some of the best trout fishing you will ever find.  I know the South Branch is what hooked me forever."

"Willow Classic Reels donated this reel to help them raise money and also wanted to pass along that we will build up to twenty-five of these reels on a first come first serve basis.  The reel has a black lacquer back ground with the authentic 25th Anniversary pin placed in the back face.  It can be ordered in size 4/5 or 5/6 which best fits most of the need in this size range.  

This is definitely a collectors must have.  The cost of these reels is $800 each and Willow Classic Reels will donate $200 from the sale of each of these reels to Anglers of the Au Sable."

If you are interested in ordering one of these very special fly reels please contact Willow Classic Reels by email at or by telephone at 248-672-5712.
