Marryat Plus Salmon Reel
If you want the Formula 1 of fly reels, then look no further than the new Marryat Plus, an anti-reverse reel that is also, remarkably, a direct drive reel. Made in Switzerland, to exacting standards, this reel is a technological breakthrough which marks a new era in fly reel design that others will surely follow.
There will be no more knuckle-bashing with this masterpiece, because when a bonefish or big sea trout tears line away the handle stays completely still (anti-reverse). You can then take control by simply squeezing the clever pressure pads on the reel handle. This remarkably effective and clever breaking system increases the drag all the way to full breaking so you can gain ground on the fish whenever it tires (direct drive). When the fish makes its next run, just ease off the pressure pads without releasing the handle and the fish can take line against the drag as normal.
With its huge backing capacity, this reel is perfect for speed merchants such as bonefish, or powerful tearaways including tuna and salmon. We’d like to hear the roar of the Formula 1 engine too, but this head-turning reel seems to take everything calmly and quietly in its stride.
