Best New Fly Reel
European manufacturers dominate the entries in this year’s Best New Fly Reel Award. They include the returning UK company, Eddystone Tatler, which is showcasing its new Tatler Piratetat Fly, described as ‘the perfect fly reel to win any fight with striped bass, tarpon and billfish’.
From France comes the JMC Galaxy, which the company says will open the doors to a new era in anti-reverse multiplier reels. Denmark‘s Pacific Wave will be showing its A. Jensen Da Vinci, which has taken the best part of a year to come to fruition. And Germany’s DAM is introducing the Quick Exquisite Fly, whose elegant design, it says, ‘stole the hearts of the passionate fly fishing experts in the company’.
But all eyes will be on Germany’s Vosseler. Last year’s winner is promising an ‘awesome’ follow-up in the shape of the A/C/M reel. Can company owner Ralf Vosseler make it two victories in a row in Paris?
