Billy Pate Salmon Reel -BIL-SAL

The Standard for the High Performance Fly Reel

The first classic Billy Pate fly fishing reels were introduced in 1976 and still remain the series at the top of fly fishing reel performance. These fly fishing reels maintain their classic gold and jet black appearance while continuing their incredible level of performance. Billy Pate fly fishing reels feature a unique anti-reverse design to keep your knuckles in tact when dealing with running fish. The Billy Pate Salmon fly fishing reel is designed for your 6-8 weight fly fishing rods and is great for fly fishing bonefish, fly fishing steelhead, fly fishing permit and of course fly fishing salmon.

While there are over 225 World Records that attest to its performance, you don't have to be interested in records to appreciate this reel. If you know your fly fishing history, you know this is the reel that set the hook.
