Red Truck Diesel 3/4 Fly Reel
As the perfect reel for the lighter side of trout fishing, our Red Truck Diesel 3/4 is correctly sized for either a 3 weight or a 4 weight outfit. With all the fly reel choices on the market today, it’s sometimes tough to remember that the essence of fly fishing should be simplicity. You can celebrate this concept by adorning your favorite fly rod with our classic Diesel 3/4. All the performance you’ll need for a memorable day on a stream, but packaged nicely in a distinctive fly reel. If you own a bamboo or fiberglass fly rod, you’ll want to pay attention to this one.
Red Truck Diesel Fly Reels
When we set out to design the Diesel Series of fly reels, our main goal was to make reels that we ourselves would enjoy fishing forever. We jogged our memories for ideas from our favorite reels from the past and pored over our huge selection of modern designs, picking and choosing the features and styles that, to us, embody the perfect freshwater fly reel.
The criteria were fairly simple: the reel had to be functional, durable, and beautiful. It had to look and sound like a fly reel. It had to have the appeal to stand the test of time. In short, it had to deserve to exist. Fully machined from anodized aluminum, the Diesel is corrosion-, scratch-, and impact-resistant. The proven click-pawl drag system is dependable, simple, and easily convertible from right to left-hand wind. Should you need to apply more pressure on fired-up trout and steelhead, the exposed palming rim is there for you.
With sweet incoming and out-going clicks, Diesel reels will satisfy anglers yearning for the simple elegance of yesteryear. And by narrowing the spool and increasing its diameter, we engineered large arbor performance into the Diesel, with the superior backing capacity of a standard arbor reel. We’ve also included a couple of nice finishing touches, like a machined brass line guard and a leather and cotton-weave zippered reel pouch to keep your reel safe for decades.
We won’t go so far as to say that the Diesel reel will catch you more fish. But its sweet sound and downright classic style will help you enjoy the fish you do catch all the more.
