Totally enlightened. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a great price. By increasing the arbor to a larger diameter and making the spool narrower—all the while decreasing its total weight and parts—Guru S takes it to another level. An enhanced spool machining technique—focusing material only where it’s needed—makes this version significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor. We’ve opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, and integrated the counterbalance. We even introduced a curved cross-section for structural stability. Taking your game to fishing nirvana, this will be your Guru for life.

Available in OG, Blaze (-3+ & -5+ Only), or Arctic (-7+ & -9+ Only).

** Guru S Spools also fit Guru S HD Reels **

Best Reel I own.

I own the Litespeed, Speedster, Gurus, Remix, and Liquids, with extra spools. For me they are 100% dependable, rock solid, easy to use and the customer service is excellent if you ever need it. I needed a new handle on one reel one time and had it it two days. I work in a sporting goods store and sell more than a dozen brands of reels. I recommend Lamson to every customer, for every flyfishing application. Thanks very much LAMSON.

Thanks for spreading the word to your customers! We appreciate your support.

The "best" reel out there.

I could buy anything. I didn't want something to obsess over. I've had that. I'm finding that I'm falling in love with this reel. It's probably the best reel out there, hands down. It's for fishing. Don't have to worry about damaging it if I fall. Don't worry about where I place it so I won't scratch it. I won't add to other's positive comments on how well it works. It just does a great job.
If you're here looking for a really great reel for actual usage. You found it.

Well said and thanks for the review! the Guru S is a workhorse, glad your putting it to work.

Reliable precise

This reel just works. It’s a workhorse and like it better than the lite speed. It’s the hammer you always wanted. Great design, solid, smooth, and great sound. The drag adjusts as described and fine tuning to the rod is easy. The drag makes the rod do all the work. It pressures fish into submission and is definitely My choice.

Perfection

So impressed with this reel. Buttery smooth drag. The large, ergonomic drag knob allows for subtle tension adjustment in a broad range that makes this reel just as suited to fishing 6x and light wire hooks as it is to fighting large trout with big hooks and heavy tippet in obstacle-ridden waters. The pickup is excellent and lays the line down tightly and efficiently with a quick spin of the spool. Has a nice purr to it as well. The arbor is generously sized for a 4/5/6 reel and has what I would call perfect line capacity. I was able to fit exactly 100 yards of 20lb micron backing and a 6wt WF floating line with ease, filling out the spool completely without any line crowding under the frame. Oh, and workhorse that it is, this reel is beautifully built with an appealing olive/bronze color and graceful machining. I have been a trout guide for 8 years and have always used the same equipment for guiding as for my own fishing... this year I decided to treat myself with a reel that is primarily for my own use, and I am thrilled that I chose the Guru S -5+. Can't go wrong with this model... I'll probably wind up ordering a couple more. Thanks to all the designers and machinists at Lamson for creating a reel that checks all the boxes!!

New Guru S

I am a big Lamson fan. I have always liked the simplicity of their designs and operational efficiency. I have just purchased a Guru S 5+ for a new 5 weight rig I have put together.
The Guru seems to have morphed from an efficient but plain jane into an understated and quite elegant design. The functionality seems to have been enhanced with improved spool porting to aid the drying of backing following the inevitable dunking i regularly give my reels.
The simple elegance of the design and the lovely olive green anodized finish look far more appealing than many top end offerings that, frankly look over designed and a little bit tacky for my tastes.
A fine effort and please keep up the great work.

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.
