We often hear anglers claim that drag is not important for trout reels, and while we agree that in many situations it is not necessary, it's mandatory on some of our favorite Big Sky Country fisheries like the Henry's Fork of the Snake.
Large, strong fish and long leaders with fine tippets require every bit of skill and technical advantage you can muster on the Fork. We may spend an hour or more working one single target on the hallowed waters of the Railroad Ranch, and the last thing you want is to lose that fish of the trip because it smoked your reel.
We trust Hatch Reels in those special situations, and owe many well-earned fish to their uncompromising quality and dependability.
The 4+ bridges the gap in size and weight between the 3 and 5 plus models. If you’re looking for the perfect reel for your 9′ 5 weight rod then look no further.
Proudly made in Southern California, USA.
