The Trout II fly reel is fully machined from premium, aerospace-quality barstock aluminum, and finished with corrosion and scratch resistant anodization. The dependable, proprietary, bearing-less disc drag system (patent pending) has been enclosed to be protected from damaging sediment and debris. It remains everything a trout and other light tackle fish angler could ever want, and more!
The Trout series features a unique, attractive spool and frame design with true large arbor dimensions. The large arbor assists in quicker line retrieve, and low line memory. Its ergonimically formed spool handle, easy left to right hand retrieve change, and simple drag adjustment rounds out its balance of function, fashion, and dependability!
Sizes offered are our 1 and 2, which cover a surprisingly wide range of line sizes and applications. Whether you're equipping your small stream, ultra-sensitive 3wt Icon, or your 5wt Volant streamer setup, the Trout series will pair up perfectly! Includes protective neoprene pouch.

Got the bigger size reel for my 6wt. Only had it for about a month so far so can't speak to the longevity of it. Reel looks awesome and I've had gotten the chance to catch some fish on it. Drag is impressive for a trout reel, strong enough to stop some chum and coho and responsive enough for feisty cutthroat. Will definitely be adding more allen reels to my arsenal in the future.

I finally got to Montana for a couple of weeks with my new Trout ll reel. What a product. The reel performed flawlessly. The drag was fantastic nad easy to adjust will fighing a 21" brown in fast moving water. Thanks for a great products at a great price. Did I mention that it is a great looking reel as well?

We've all heard that saying. I now have A Trout ll reel for my 4 & 5 at. Rods. They are unbelievable smooth and the drag is kickback free. The drag adjustment knob is big, easy to adjust with a fish in the line and smooth as butter. So why a 4 star rating and not a 5? Once I get into a Montana big brown this summer, I'm 99% sure I'll upgrade my rating. Did I say they look great as well?

I recently got an Allen Trout II reel, and I am very happy with it. Tolerances are tight, looks awesome, and the drag is great. I've mostly used standard arbor reels in the past and I am already enjoying the benefits of the larger arbor design of this reel. This is going to be my go to reel for my 6 weight outfits.

Fantastic reel. I've very much enjoyed this. Great relation and the drag is easy to change on the fly. Plus it looks damn sexy. Allen with the win.

Got my first chance to get out and try my new reel. Loved it! Hooked up with some fish and what I loved was the smooth drag system and when reeling the fish in. Great product and love what they do for those who served in the military.

At first I was skeptical when purchasing this reel due to its price point. However after a few weeks of testing, I've come to realize it's a great value! My one issue is drag strength. It seems like every steelhead Over 7 pounds pulls into my backing. Not exactly an issue, however still not something I love.
Overall it's really a wonderful reel for trout as the name implies, and carries a great amount quality at its price mark.
