Islander LX Series Fly Reel

Free Ground Shipping 1-4 days.


As the tool of choice for discerning fly anglers, the LX series fly reels are the definition of refinement. From west slope cutthroat trout to sailfish in the blue water, the LX takes your fish catching experience to a new level of exhilaration.

Buttery Smooth Drag

From bonefish to chinook, tarpon to trout, the properties of our premium cork drag give you the stopping power you need with the smoothness you crave for consistent fish fighting pressure fish after fish, year after year. On top of that, our ingeniously simple system virtually eliminates the trip-ruining failures of canister-type drag systems.

Large Arbor For Quick Retrieve

The LX’s large arbor spool increases your retrieval rate so that when that torpedo runs right at you, you’ve got the pick up to stay on it. At the same time, spey anglers have all the capacity they need in the 4.5 inch model to tackle the big rivers where the chrome and the king reign.

Interchangeable Retrieve

Right or left handed… It doesn’t matter. With a simple procedure, you can reel your reel your way.

Custom Laser Engraving

Perfect for retirement gifts, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events or just a personalized look, this add on ensures your reel will stand out. Leave a note during checkout or give us a call and we’ll provide you with more information.

The laser engraving process permanently etches the anodized finish without fully penetrating the coating to ensure the finish’santi-corrosive properties are maintained. The process produces a white finish—we cannot engrave in colour.
