Our Maestro fly reels are easily identifiable with their classic raised pillar faceplate design and sunken counter balance. 

 
Each reels components, including each individual screw, are painstakingly turned at our workshop in Redditch from a variety of solid bar metals including aluminium, nickel silver and naval brass ensuring a better overall fit once assembled. Production of these fly reels is limited.
 
The reels feature tapered Ivorine handles, nickel silver gun screws and pillars with a gun metal anodized frame. The fly reels get their characteristic sound from our unique adjustable click and pawl drag, which provides a directional click, with the outgoing click louder than the incoming. The spools run on both ball race and phosphor bronze bearings for a smooth wind, and can be easily converted from left to right hand wind. Each reel is serial numbered and comes with the Chris Clemes inheritable warranty on workmanship.
 
The Maestro No278 fly reel measures 2 7/8” in diameter and is available in 3 models (00, 10 & 20) to match #1/2, #3/4 and #5/6 lines and can be easily converted to your choice of left or right hand wind. The models, in particular the 00, feature a shallow arbor to prevent line memory but with ample capacity for both silk and synthetic fly lines.
 
Prices start from £580
