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 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 Volant streamer setup, the Trout series will pair up perfectly!  Includes protective neoprene pouch.

    My First Allen Reel

    Published by Brandon Schafer on 31st Mar 2016

    Got my first chance to get out and try my new reel. Loved it! Hooked up with some fish and what I loved was the smooth drag system and when reeling the fish in. Great product and love what they do for those who served in the military.

    Not too bad!

    Published by Jason on 27th Mar 2016

    At first I was skeptical when purchasing this reel due to its price point. However after a few weeks of testing, I've come to realize it's a great value! My one issue is drag strength. It seems like every steelhead Over 7 pounds pulls into my backing. Not exactly an issue, however still not something I love.
    Overall it's really a wonderful reel for trout as the name implies, and carries a great amount quality at its price mark.

    Excellent Value

    The Trout II is light and balances well on my 6 weight. The drag is very smooth and easy to adjust - feels like a more expensive reel. Looks great too!

    2nd trout II I've bought first on 8'6"4wt heritage and the second on a echo glass 3wt in orange. Looking forward to a Kraken XLA this spring and getting ready for Red's this fall off of the Carolina coast!

    My first Allen fly reel

    Published by Brian Rader on 28th Dec 2015

    I just received my new Allen Trout II fly reel. I have to say this reel is awesome!!!!! Smooth sealed drag, and I love the large Arbor! This reel is as well made as any high end pricey reels like Orvis, Lamson and so on. Allen hit a home run with this reel for budget minded fly fisherman like myself. It looks and feels great on my Sage response fly rod. Definitely will buy another for my Redington 5wt. I did a lot of research looking for the right reel, and no other could compare! Thanks Allen!

    First Allen Reel

    Got my first Allen fly reel this Christmas and used it the next day on a river in Ohio. Hooked into a few Browns and love the feel and look of the reel. Great Product!

    Best reel purchase/price

    Published by Jeff Senior on 27th Dec 2015

    I had been waiting to match a reel to my Heritage 905 and having high end Ross , and Hardy reels available just felt the Rod needed matches with an Allen product. This is a reel built to qualify of any I own costing 2-3 times more. Aesthetically it blends modern with hint of classic lines.
