***Gunmetal #2, Green #1, and Orange #2 available for pre-order. Will ship after March 11***
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!

This Reel is So Sleek, the Green is beautiful and pops! I cannot wait to throw it on my Heritage Rod. A.F.F. Is very legit, and will continue doing my business through them!

This has to be the best reel under $200, it has handle every fishing situation I put through, to include landing 25" Rainbows on 5X tippet.

I've purchased three of these reels now and I've never regretted it! Super smooth and really great looking. Works good in below freezing conditions also here in Utah.

This real handles fish nicely. Took it out yesterday and worked flawlessly in 20 degree weather.

I've been fishing the Trout II on an 8-foot 3-weight for nearly a month and haven't found anything about it that isn't top shelf. Fit and finish are impeccable and the price point is so low for a reel of this quality it's hard to believe. I'd like to see a parts list and instructions for converting left to right retrieve included, but that's a minor quibble. I'll be recommending this reel to my custom rod clients.

I was very impressed with the reel as soon as I picked it up. It is light weight, but is very smooth and performs great.

Have to say the quality is superb. Purchased as a backup, spare but will most likely going to be paired with my 4 weight Winston for now on. Value, price is unmatched.

One of the best looking reels I've ever seen. Super smooth. Compliments my 7wt bvk really well with the green blank (I got the orange color reel). You can fit a good amount of backing on it with a 7 wt line which is something I worried about. Haven't gotten to test the drag out yet but plan on going after some carp when the water warms. Awesome reel! I plan on ordering another at some point for sure. Consider me a lifelong allen customer!

The trout 2 has been my workhorse of a reel on the small to medium sized streams I enjoy fishing. I love that it is a high quality machined reel that is affordable. I've fished it hard for the past six months and not a scratch on its finish!!! It fishes beyond well, can be used for multiple applications / species, and looks sexy when you're out there on the water. The guys at Allen know what they are doing in providing great affordable products with outstanding customer service.
