Product Description

The Cortland Desire fly reels are new for 2014. Beautifully made and precisely finished these reels get our top marks for a quality fly reel at around the £50 mark.


The Cortland Desire fly reel comes in two sizes:

A 3.40" diameter reel for AFTM 5-6 fly lines (plus backing line)
A 3.75" diameter reel for AFTM 7-8 fly lines (plus backing line)

#6-7 Weight: 152g (5.4oz)
#7-8 Weight: 162g (6.0oz)

Both versions are about 1.5" wide and have an adjustable disc drag which can be easily changed over for left or right hand winding.


These fly reels are made from strong and durable die cast aluminium which are then CNC machined to give the beautiful finish and precise fit.


Cortland Desire Fly Reel

- Large Arbour
- Hybrid design - Die cast aluminium and machine cut parts
- Large arbour design for easier and quicker retrieve
- Fully sealed centre drag system
- Can be easily changed from LHW to RHW
- One way clutch bearing for smooth drag engagement
- Manufactured in China


These are really nice fly reels. They look good with a high quality, low flash finish, they're machined to very close tolerances giving a precise finish that won't trap your fly lines, the drag system is easily adjusted and very smooth and refined and they even have a smart blue cover for the disc drag that gives them an individual touch of colour.

These reels fit very nicely into our range of top quality fly reels. If you're looking for a fly reel at around the £50 mark then these would be our top recommendation.
