Great REEL! Ross Evolution

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just used my Ross Evolution LT Spool and love it! I am new to fly fishing

so my particular husband thought this might be a good first reel for me.

ROSS was so nice---they even "rigged" it up for me. I even caught fish

(aquarium size, but still fish) Thanks for my new reel and thanks for

getting it all ready for me. I will be Ross Reels new best friend!

Ross Evolution LT Fly Reel Awesomeness

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Ross Evo is my all around go to trout reel. Super light, bomber construction, flawless-take-it-for-granted-perfomance and awesome looks!

Snake River Cuttie

I'm the CSR here at Ross Reels and caught this Snake river cuttie after work the other day on my Evo LT #3. The Evolution LT is unquestionably one of the lightest fly reels ever produced, and as such this large arbor fly reel is a machining masterpiece. I trust my Evo Lt with the lightest of tippets and know the drag is strong enough to with stand the runs of big fish.
