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 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!

I own at least 1 of almost every reel in the Allen lineup but this Trout II is what kicked off my obsession. I have netted more big river trout (20"+) on this reel than anything else. Smooth drag and amazing control. As many may know, one of the hardest things to do is land a monster brown when you are by yourself on the river. The other day, I had a banner day on the Truckee and managed 4 big browns in a row, all over 20"'s. It was a day I won't soon forget and I landed those fish on my own ONLY because of the control I had with the Trout II. Any lesser reel, and I would have lost a couple, if not all. It gave me supreme confidence, even as a beginning angler. After realizing the quality of this reel, I came back here and purchased another Trout II for stillwater. Over time now, I have acquired the ATS, Kraken, and Kraken XLA reels. All preform exceptionally well. I can confidently and proudly say I am a loyal Allen customer now. I don't even use any other brand reels when fishing rivers or stillwater and even the famed Pyramid Lake where 15+lb cutthroat are the norm these days. Allen gets my personal seal of approval as the best quality reels and most outstanding customer service. They have a customer for life!!!

Couldn't be happier with my TroutII. I bought it to replace a cheap cast Cabelas reel that was heavier than a brick and performed like one as well. Matched it up to my LS6 3Wt and I couldn't believe at the performance. Looks awesome, works even better. Cant say enough about this reel. I will be CERTAIN to purchase a Kraken when Im ready to build my 9WT digs.

After hearing about Allen reels from friends, I decided to give the Allen reel a try. Now I know why they speak so highly and enthusiastically about these reels.
The ease of spool changing, lightweight feel, and solid craftsmanship won me over.
Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

I bought this reel in 3wt. When i received it in the mail it was christmas in August! Took the reel and my Allen ATS 3wt rod to some high mountain brooks and was not disappointed the smoothest reel i have ever used!!!!!

If your thinking about buying this reel, quit thinking and buy it! Great drag, extremely smooth, and looks great. Put this reel on my 7 1/2' 3wt rod and have not been disappointed at all! Fished the hell out of it this year, and will be buying more for other rods in the future. Every bit as good as my orvis reel that I paid 3x as much for.

Once you pick up your jaw from starring at this sexy reel you will find out that it is a smooth operator. Just by holding the reel you can tell that it is solid as a rock and machined to perfection. It has a reel smooth drag and is a perfect mach for my 4wt Winston Passport. I could't be more happier and who ever decides to purchase this reel will fall in love instantly. Kudos to Allen Fly Fishing for such an awsome product, I can't wait to try your other products. The only complaint, if you want to call it a conplaint, is you need to add some rod and reel holders to you product catalog.

I promised myself (and my wife) that I wouldn't buy an Allen until I felt I was worthy. Seeing how my skills have progressed little over the past year, and that I will probably never be worthy of an Allen, I tossed all that crap aside and went ahead and ordered a Trout II anyway.
What an absolutely lovely piece of machinery! It is beautifully designed and obviously rugged, yet shows fine attention to detail. The reel is gunmetal gray and, teamed with a 5wt Heritage rod in deep brown, the combination looks so good that I left it lying on our grand piano for a while as a piece of art.
Haven't yet taken any big fish to test the drag or retrieve under pressure, but.....dang! Do I look good!
PS: Awesome customer service. I really like these guys.

Purchased Trout II size 1 for 3wt Icon. What a great reel! The build is perfect and the drag performs flawlessly. The reel is smooth and well balanced with no loose play in the spool. The drag works great even with small tippets. I like the range of adjustment in the drag. When you adjust its tension it does so gradually, it doesn't change drastically with a small turn of the knob as some other reels. First day in use landed multiple fish in fast riffles with 7x tippet on the point fly. Buy this reel, you will be happy you did.

I ordered this reel to go with the Heritage 3wt rod for backcountry hiking and fishing. I spent time researching other outfits and after reading the reviews on this reel and Allen. I am glad I did the reel is a gem. I can't wait to get it out on my next trip.
