Taylor Reels, Albuquerque, NM


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..........

    1. gman,

      I can recommend these rells to you. I enjoyed using the one I had and just recently returned it back to them. The reels do what they are supposed to do and I can't say anything bad about them. The model I used was a bit small for me, but it worked great. If you enjoy supporting "the little guy" and a local company, it's a no-brainer! I really like the look of the newer models. Maybe I can get my hands on one to demo.
      Juan
