Behemoth Series Fly Reel

Why We Like The Redington Behemoth Series Fly Reel

A heavy-duty fly reel that's relatively light on our pocket book, the Redington Behemoth Reel holds up under duress when we've hooked into a twenty pound steelhead, a big bad bonefish, or a rainbow that completely lost it when we set the hook. Built with the most powerful drag in its class, the Behemoth Series features a powerful carbon fiber drag system that can be cranked up when we need to put some serious pressure on big and stubborn fish, but it maintains a smooth feel so we won't instantly snap our line when bruiser fish run at the first sign of our net. Made primarily for big game fish and saltwater fishing, the Behemoth is also available in five- and six-weight options for trout applications, and it will balance well with longer spey rods for salmon and steelhead fishing.

My work horse reel.

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

This is the reel I usually go to when tackling lakes and large rivers. The 5/6wt version I have is light enough to hike in, and strong enough to tackle anything from trout in Yellowstone to smallmouth on the Shenandoah. I have taken this thing out and gotten it wet in single digit temperatures and it never frozen up on me. The large drag knob makes it super easy to jump to quickly when needing to adjust it on the fly. Will definitely be grabbing another when I start to put together a saltwater setup. #BackcountryGearhead
