Classic aesthetics with modern performance. Drawing inspiration from the historic Sage 500 series reels, the Modern Classics collection introduces reels designed for the angler longing for a nod to the past. A romantic appeal to designs and colors that reflect a classic feel of old yet packed with performance features that will assure you’ll never lose that fish of a lifetime.
The TROUT SPEY reel features our proven One Revolution, Sealed Carbon System (SCS) drag, while encompassing a full-frame design to assure the running lines do not migrate between the spool and frame during dynamic casting motions. Similarly styled to the SPEY Reel, The TROUT SPEY has a larger width for increased shooting head capacity and greater weight to help better balance Trout Spey rods. In the 1/2/3 you have a reel perfectly suited to ultra-light Trout Spey applications or the angler looking for a lighter weight solution for their 3wt. The 3/4/5 offers a heavier solution for the 3wt or a nice match to a 4wt or 5wt Trout Spey rod.
Classic – now with smoother, more consistent, and reliable performance.

A NOTE ABOUT RETRIEVE: Reels are designated as either left and or right hand retrieve, which simply refers to the hand used for reeling in line. Modern reels convert easily between right or left hand retrieve. However, it is important for an angler to designate how they want the reel set up before the backing and line are spooled onto the reel. Many right-handed casters use left hand retrieve on their reels so they don’t have to switch hands between casting and fighting a fish. Other anglers prefer to use their dominant hand for both casting and reeling, so they switch hands on the rod after a fish is hooked.
