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 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 Olympic series rod, 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!

What a beautiful reel. My first 'expensive' reel. I had an old Cabela's click and pawl reel from the 80s and decided to upgrade. I'm thoroughly impressed. The reel itself is beautiful. They drag adjustments are very sensitive so setting this reel to match your situation are quick and easy.
While the reel itself is great, the biggest reason I purchased from Allen was the customer service. The employees are quick to respond to emails and super helpful when they do so. The level of customer outreach and the quality of product is what should make you want to go with Allen.

Pleasantly surprised by fit and finish.
Very smooth, light -weight reel, really matches up well with my Orvis Clearwater rod. Extemely lighweight combo. Nice smooth drag on this reel as well.
I'm an Allen customer for sure.

The looks are outstanding. Performance is perfect. No slop, no back lash, no wobble. This reel far exceeds the price.

I Purchased the Trout II Reel in a #1, Which I loaded with 3w line. Reel maybe a little Heavy but I have already landed several nice Trout including a really nice 20" Rainbow no problem....

This reel is worth every penny. Looks amazing, the drag is flawless and it's a great price. Don't hesitate, you won't regret it.

The first thing I noticed was that the fit and finish on this reel was excellent. The #1 balances well with my 9' 4 weight Winston rod. I only had a chance to fish with it once so far but it performed flawlessly. I am a very happy customer! Thanks Allen Fly Fishing!

I purchased this reel to pair up with my ats 5 wt and what a combo! I have been extremely impressed with the reel and so have my friends, who happen to be competitive fly fishermen with big name sponsors. The reel is smooth with a great drag system. I purchased the burnt orange version which really catches the eye!

This was my first try at a higher end reel after trying to cheap out for a few years. I am beyond impressed. It was absolutely fantastic. Allen means top quality product and service. Can't wait to buy other products.

Very well made reel. Much better reel than some of the well known brands. I like the looks, performance, and price so much that I now own 2 of them.
I have emailed these guys and they respond quickly. Thanks for the outstanding customer service.

I recently purchased a Trout II for use on my Alaska wilderness trips. The reel got broken in on the Koktuli River and performed perfectly on grayling, dollies and rainbows. I will be buying more for client use.
Thank you, Allen, for producing such a high-quality reel at an affordable price.
