The Trout II fly reel 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 ergonomically 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.

    Best bang for your buck and an incredible company

    Published by William Garwood on 21st Aug 2017

    Bought this reel about a month ago and am absolutely in love. Best bang for your buck on the market!

    Would also like to give their customer service department. Had the drag system blow out over the weekend, called them this morning(Monday) and was immediately greeted with a friendly hello. From there on they helped me solve my issue in a timely manner, and are getting me everything I need before my birthday this weekend. Great work guys, keep on providing me with this kind of support and you'll have a lifetime customer!

    Great Reel

    Published by Jared Tanner on 15th Aug 2017

    I really like my new reel and it looks very well constructed. I am currently building the rod it will go on so have not tested it on the water yet, hence the 4 stars. I am looking forward to getting it out. The orange looks great and it seems to be on par with reels worth twice as much.

    Excellent Quality Reel.

    Published by Cortland Brown on 20th Jul 2017

    Bought this Reel for my husbands rod I tried it out last weekend and I have to say it is the smoothest reel I've ever had on a rod. I have Abel on mine and I would say this reel is right in the running with my Abel. Great work guys!

    Trout II

    Published by Tom Hourcafe on 24th Jun 2017

    Very happy with this reel. Got the 1 for my 3 wt Heritage rod and I've been pleased with the performance. The drag has worked very well to this point. I have a Trout II 2 for my 6 wt outfit, and I was pleased enough with that one to try the 1. It hssn't disappointed.

    Amazing Reel For An Amazing Price

    Published by Kyle S. on 28th May 2017

    I bought the Trout 2 and it is hands down one of the best reels I've owned. I like it better the Orvis hydros and TFO BVK both of which more expensive. Ive really enjoyed fishing with this reel and for the price it can't be beat. The drag is system on the Trout 2 super smooth. I've only had it for 4 or 5 months but it seems very durable from what I've experienced. It also looks incredible. Definitely going to go with Allen reels from now on.

    Terrific Reel (and rod set-up)!

    Published by Eric on 2nd May 2017

    Like anything else when trying something new, it takes some time to adjust accordingly. Having only used another brand, I decided to try something different. Purchased the rod (Compass) at a recent fly fishing show, but had not used it until I purchased an Allen reel as well. After several outings, I love the set-up I have.

    This reel has exceeded all of my expectations. The finish is excellent, and the range on the drag is incredible. My only gripe would be that the lower spectrum of the drag doesn't offer super fine adjustment as is ramps up pretty quickly, but it's more than sufficient. I really can't believe the quality of this reel for the price point.

    Another thing is that the name is misleading! This will definitely become my reel for bass fishing this summer after I purchase another spool.

    Great for the price

    Published by Bo Jensen. on 15th Mar 2017

    I used the Trout 2 for sea run coastal trout in Denmark without any problems. I even did som bone fishing in The bahamas with great succes. It was drowned completely several times and even had some coral sand in it. After flushing in fresh water still going strong without any issues. Drag is very good and hard to beat for the bucks. Only thing that CAN theoretically beat it are lighter reels at the same size. But this one is sturdy. Like it a lot.

    great reel for the value

    Published by Unknown on 20th Feb 2017

    This is the third trout II we've bought, great overall product. Fit and finish for the price is more than expected, drag system is smoooth and okay start up, overall power of drag could be higher but for a 5-6wt it all you need. Would love to try the higher value reels but for the $ I'd probably go a different direction.
