The Trout II series has taken the best features of our ever popular original Trout Series, and improved on them in every way. The Trout II 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.
We will load your reel with backing and line for free! When you select backing and a line on the menus above, you will be charged a discounted price for both backing and line with no charge for putting it on the reel! Be sure to pick which direction you need the retrieve so that we load it up correctly for you!

I tend to do a lot of research before I purchase anything. I like to get the best bang for the buck. I handled a lot of reels and the Trout II was by far the smoothest and finest looking reel at any price point. I paired this up with a Compass rod and it worked perfectly. A very balanced set-up. I've only fly fished a few times and never owned my own fly rod & reel till now. I couldn't wait till spring so I ventured out a few weeks ago in the middle of a snow storm to give it a go. Landed my first trout on a fly and it turned out to be my biggest. A 20 inch Ohio Brown. I was so stoked I bought a Volant rod & Alpha III reel to go steelhead fishing in a few weeks.

Awesome looking reel !!!! This feels like a well built fly reel. I love the color and the quality of the reel. This Trout II reels will be use for most of my Trout and Pan fish fishing in Western Pennsylvania. I get wait to use it. Thanks and keep up the great work and products. Great company to work with.

This is a well built reel and the quality is better than I expected. I put this on a Volant 4wt and it performed great.
I bought this reel and wanted it for my trip to Broken Bow, OK that weekend. The guys at Allen made accommodations to ensure I would have it with me when I left. Their customer service is top notch.

So far so good. I am not very experienced, this is my first fly reel but can only say good things about it. It looks good, performs flawlessly and I like the overall construction...just feels solid.

I was so blown away by my Kraken reel that I went ahead and moved forward with the purchase of the Trout II reel and also an extra spool. As I anticipated, it is a fine piece of work! Perfect craftsmanship and flawless operation. And the extra spool I purchased in a different color also fit perfect with no issues at all. I would highly recommend these reels to anyone. I see no reason they won't meet your needs.

A great real a almost any price point. Only downside is the drag adjustment at my personal sweet spot. It can go from too much to not enought in one click. I couldn't be happier with the real at this point. Much nicer real than the Orvis Access reals I have for other rods. Not to mention Allen rmailing me personally to see if I was satisfied with the product. Excellent customer service which earns my business.

Beautiful job and when your a rod builder you can match these special edition colors to the colors of the wraps and the result is amazing. Keep the colors coming!!! Quality is what I have come to expect from Allen...excellent....

Recently received the trout 2 reel in size 2 in red. The reel has a great smooth drag, is easy to remove the spool and is super light. The reel came with a great neoprene case. The reel pairs great with my 6 wt Allen Volant rod. I'm looking forward to battling bass on this combo in the spring. I'm impressed with the quality and affordability and will definitely be buying more Allen reels in the future.
