CLA™

Strong and Dependable - A Guide Favorite

Availability: Out of stock

Made in USA


The CLA has set the standard for affordable large arbor fly reels by incorporating a superior drag mechanism that is extraordinarily smooth, heat resistant and provides incredible stopping power. While it may be offered at a reasonable price, this is by no means a budget "compromise" reel as no options have been overlooked. The series is fully machined out of a proprietary aluminum alloy, fully anodized for protection and built to take the type of abuse applied to a reel that is used every day of the season.

Customer Reviews

Great Review by Fiddling and fishing

I like the reels because they work well and are not fussy. No need to oil or grease, ever. Just rinse and it is ready for the next adventure. Simple design and a reasonable price for a reel that will catch all those nice fish just as well as the $800 reels. (Posted on 9/17/2014)
Soild for the price Review by Stealth

Colorado Native so yes I'm biased about Ross...but proof is in the pudding. I use it as my go to every day reel, love the versatility of it, smooth drag, easy to set. Best reel I have for the money. MADE IN COLORADO (Posted on 8/19/2014)
CLA = solid Review by IdahoPro

I am a professional guide. This reel is built well and has lasted 5 consecutive summers with clients who beat it up. I recommend this reel. (Posted on 4/8/2014)
