Use the force. Force Salt / Spey reels are built for speed. If fast fish in big water is the order, then this is your reel. With its extreme diameter, a Force 4 will haul in about a foot of line every turn (if loaded to capacity), which means most anglers can reel line faster than they can strip it. All Force Salt / Spey reels employ a scaled-up version of our conical drag to produce tarpon stopping torque with the silk-smooth feel of our best trout reel.

Fish saver. Our breakout product in the fly fishing industry, years ago, we thought: “There’s got to be a better way to remove a delicately-tied fly from a hooked fish than the hoisting, clamping, and wrenching process now on display.” So we created a simply innovative tool capable of reducing fish mortality by eliminating netting and handling—then named it after our home-base of Ketchum, Idaho. This technique will preserve protective coatings and eliminate air exposure. The Ketchum Release® tool makes low-mortality release easy, plus allows you to retrieve your fly without damage. It even keeps your hands high and dry. The Ketchum Release® is available in three sizes: Big Bug for hook sizes 6-10; Standard for sizes 12-16; and Midge for sizes 18-22.
