Fly Fishing reels shouldn't cause financial hardships. And they shouldn't fall apart just because they aren't expensive. The Echo Ion Reel series is a monster value without the typical fly fishing monster price tag.

With a large arbor for quick retrieves and a hybrid machined/cast design, the Ion is a great choice for balancing single-hand and two-hand rods of all sizes. Designed primarily for freshwater use, this reel can be used in saltwater environments, but with a little additional care. When you need a reel that can get the job done, turn to the Ion - you won't be disappointed! Featuring: Maintenance-free disc drag with low start-up resistance; Backlash-free, instant drag reaction; Incoming/outgoing audible click; Durable alloy construction; and a Large arbor spool design for fast line pickup and low line memory.
