Lamson Fly Reels are superb reels for the fly angler looking for high performance reels. Their excellent design and super-light construction set them apart from other fly reels.

Waterworks was formed in 1996 when fishermen who happened to be product designers figured a better way to release a fly-caught fish. They realised that the conventional hemostat used by fly fishermen wasn’t good for the fish or the fly. Their solution was an innovative tool that allowed a fish to be released without handling. Named after their hometown in Idaho, they called the tool the Ketchum Release.

Prior to forming Waterworks, they honed their skills in the world of high performance cycling. They were creating and patenting cutting-edge components and mountain bike suspension technology. Turning their focus to the fly reel was a logical thing to do. Reels were, essentially, a wheel on a frame.

Today Lamson make a range of exceptional fly reels that will fit any angler’s budget, whether you are a rank novice or seasoned veteran.
