The award-winning U.S.-made Omega series of reels from Allen Fly Fishing pair a modern, large-arbor design with an unparalleled drag system to provide anglers with the perfect multi-species tool. The negligible start-up inertia and amazingly smooth application of drag power is perfect for light tippet situations with large lake-run fish, while the “U”-shaped spool has plenty of room for the heavier lines thrown at apex predators. For those true freshwater monsters, the peerless stopping power of the Omega’s drag is up to the task. After almost a half a decade in development, and several trips back to the drawing board, we’ve reached a finished product that we’re proud to send on any fishing trip. Once you consider the beautifully anodized finish, unique porting and detailing, and a bulletproof warranty, it’s easy to start wondering why you ever fished another reel

Attention to detail was our top priority during development.  It features the tightest tolerances and finest hardened anodized finish in the industry.  The custom reel balance and individually machined serial number on each frame provide a custom look that showcases each reel's hand-made attention to detail.  The Omega is ready to provide a lifetime of fishing adventures in both your home fisheries and your "bucket list" trips. We are proud to be producing this reel in the heartland of manufacturing:  The American Midwest!

    I recently bought a spare spool to fish this reel with a 9wt, as well as a 10wt. The Omega is a great reel. It's very sturdy, very smooth, and has a great feel to it. It is a pleasure to use. I also have a Kraken XLA, which is a very nice reel. The Omega has a more solid feel, but I really like the size of the XLA. I may end up with an Omega XLA before it's all over with. Anyway, the Omega is a great reel, and has so far performed flawlessly against the striper I've put it up against. If you're comparing this to other established names at a similar price point, I can say that I have a Hatch, and a Tibor, But I have 3 Allens.

    I have 2 Kraken reels and now I have added the Omega. Can't wait to fish with it! Quality craftsmanship and looks. Might buy me another one but different color.

    The Gods Created the Omega

    Published by Patrick Gingras on 28th Oct 2016

    Hands down my favorite reel to use. Paired with my Volant 12 wt. this combo is my go to for any big game, hard pulling, man handling fish. Aside from its glossy finish and vibrant color combinations, the omega is the work horse of the Allen Reels fleet. The drag systems that you can literally lock down and stop a fish in its tracks. This is my go to for the mullet runs, keys tarpon, and offshore pelagics. You owe yourself to buy one of these reels and you will be quite satisfied.

    Mythical fish taming machine

    Published by Adam on 9th Sep 2015

    The Omega should come wrapped in gold wrapping paper, and angels should sing as you open it and prepare to battle your finned foes. Any fly rod becomes a magical spear that can tame the mightiest finned monstrosity once an Omega is strapped onto it. The line capacity, smoothness of the drag, and pure aesthetic appeal are second to none in any price range. I've put mine against monster snook and tarpon, and I'm just as impressed with it as I was the first time I saw it. The last reel you'll want or need to ever buy.

    Intense reel

    Published by ivan garza on 21st Jun 2015

    The omega 3, i have on a helios 2 8wt rod, and what a light set up! It has all the drag i need to pull snook out of the roots, my clients love the set up and i couldn't be happier with it, i also have the omega 5 on a helios 2 11wt rod, and this where i get to truly test the drag on tarpon and couldnt ask for smoother and effective drag, im truly happy with allens products. Been happy with allen customer service and how good you guys treat us, thank you guys.

    The guys put together an all red version of the Omega III, and it is gorgeous. Not had a change to fish it yet (I live in Duluth), but heading south in April. Fit and finish are as good as the T*b*r or the N**til*s, at a better price point. What more can you say?
