As the light fades, you hear the familiar sound of the Sage 2200 Fly Reel and feel the take of a good-sized trout. You knew you had one more left to catch, even if you are going to get some slack for a late return. Firmly and quickly, you win the battle, bring the trout to shore, release it, and marvel at its beauty and the beauty of your 2200 Reel. This large arbor reel features a rugged, machined die-cast frame, generous concave spool surface, whisper-smooth carbon drag, and unexpected finishing touches like its fully machined drag knob and handle that give more than the fish bargained for. Spool change-outs are quick, straightforward, and clean while its reel wind direction makes switching from right to left hand retrieve a cinch.
