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.

My first Trout series reel from Allen after purchasing several Kracken (and XLA) models. As expected, the reel is very well made, has an excellent drag system, and is available at an outstanding price/value point. Recently spent some time with it on the South Fork in ID and Flat Creek in WY and it handled the large cutties with ease. Matched up with a Hardy Zenith 5 wt is a great combo!

This reel (I have the Burnt Orange) is a workhorse. Not only is it beautiful to look at, but it performs flawlessly when it counts--strong currents and working fish around big boulders. The drag is incredibly smooth and easy to adjust on the fly. I would put this up against any of the reels that I have paid 3x as much for.

Simply put, after fishing with Sage, TFO, & other high end reels, then fishing Allen Fly reels, I will never waist my money ever again! I'm currently in the process of changing all my gear to Allen!

I recently purchased and received a Pink Trout II for a custom rod that I built for a lady friend. The real was a perfect match for the Casting for the Cure rod which is a black Rainshadow blank, Pink Wraps and pink feather inlays and to top it off the reel was loaded with Pink Rio Dry Line.... Now comes the practice and the fishing with this new combination for a beginner fly caster.... The quality of the reel is what I have become to expect of Allen reels.

Great reels for the $$$$$
A bit heavy, But that is what I expected from a larger arbor reel in smaller size.

Put the reel on a 6 wt Sage Respnse; it looks good and performed well; tested the drag on a nice trout; may not be as smooth as my Lamson but still did well

I live in Alabama and am flying to Denver in three days to fish the Arkansas during the caddis hatch (April 2015).
This is maybe a once in a lifetime trip for me. My favorite rod is my Xa 6wt. It has made me a better fly fisher.
I decided I need a matching reel, but was afraid it wouldn’t get here in time for the trip.
I called Allen (talked to the owner) and explained my worries . . . received my orange Trout II 5wt-6wt the next day!
This reel is VERY sexy with the Allen rod!
It is so well made that I’m sure it’s gonna be fabulous!
