Why We Like The Hardy Fortuna Regent Fly Reel

For those of us who dream of bonefish and redfish, the Hardy Fortuna Regent Fly Reel is a big-time reel for saltwater fisheries. The reel has a large arbor and narrow spool profile, and it's built around a high-power drag system that's sealed in Hardy's best waterproof drag housing. With its effortless control, power, and rapid line retrieval, it's a worthy successor to the original Fortuna series.
