After more than two years of development and testing, and two more in the hands of the fishing public, the Ross™ F1™ has revolutionized modern fly reel design. A complete departure from conventional thinking, it also incorporates the most innovative features found in any fly reel available today.
The Animas River flows rough and wild through southwest Colorado. Like its namesake, the Ross Reels™ Animas™ reel will keep running no matter what it faces. With a custom two-tone anodized finish and solid aluminum frame components, the reel is coupled with a liquid-smooth and powerful drag system with low start-up inertia. The drag has a tool-less, simple right-to-left hand conversion and protects even the lightest tippet, vital when demanding quarry makes blistering, unexpected runs. The large arbor aids in retrieving all the line that just went through the tip-top.

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.
