I've always been a gear junkie. Most of you know that. I love rods, reels, gadgets and other crap that most people don't ever think about needing. I have most of it if it's used for fly fishing. I like my stuff and and when I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. I like to support the USA made companies and the local companies. When I stumbled upon Taylor Fly Reels, I checked out their website and I liked what I saw. A local company, they are based in Albuquerque, NM. They are a new company and I shot the owner, Matthew an e-mail asking him if I could test out a reel and provide a review to help him out in anyway I could. I have a few trips out with the Taylor Reel, the Type 1. What do I think? I think it is a solid reel and can do everything a Nautilus, Sage, Lampson, Orvis or Ross reel can do. I've put it in the hands of my clients and I never worried about it having any issues. I noticed that as soon as I unboxed it. It was a good reel and it was a quality reel. I'll have more information about the reel as I use it more, but I am pretty sure I won't have much more to add as I can already tell this is as good as any other reel. Check out their website and their story. It's always great when someone works hard to create a great product. More to come.......... https://www.taylorflyfishing.com/#welcome
