Access Mid-Arbor Reels

Our Access mid-arbor fly fishing reels are sure to impress any angler.

Details

The new Access Mid-Arbor fly fishing reels take the mid-arbor concept to a new level of performance and do it at a price that makes it accessible to everyone. Starting at just $145, the Access Reel Series offers a full-range of performance features from machined 6061 aircraft aluminum to a totally sealed carbon and stainless-steel drag surface. From the diminutive I to the big-game V, the Access offers the angler the benefits of large arbor; faster retrieve, less coiling, but at a diameter size that isn't quite as overwhelming as some large arbors. With a new larger handle, positive click drag adjustment, and three bold colors, the Access fly fishing reels are the best dollar for dollar reel value in the industry. Imported.

      By: from new york

      I've used my Access mid-arbor V for two king salmon seasons and its never let me down. The drag is very smooth, even after a dunk in the river. This reel is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. I highly recommend this reel.

      Just One Problem - 8/6/2014
      By: from Virginia

      An excellent reel and a perfect compliment to my Access 9' 5wt. It balances the rod perfectly and the gold finish just looks classy. Drag is smooth and I'm pleased. 4 stars because of the reel pouch: the darned thing is so tight that inserting or removing the reel is a definite struggle. I've even tried slitting the elastic band at the opening but with no result. I'm so frustrated with it that I'm just going to chuck the darned thing and buy a case from another manufacturer.

      New favorite reel! - 8/4/2014
      By: from Minneapolis, MN

      I recently purchased the gold version of the orvis access reel and took it out to Yellowstone on a week long fly fishing trip! It worked perfectly the whole time and got some compliments from a few other fishermen on the river! I would recommend this reel to anyone looking for great performance, durability, and a beautiful design.

      By: from Northern New Mexico/So. Colorado

      Looks great, works perfect, excellent size, easy to use drag control, light weight, and high quality. Hard to beat this reel for the money or even for a couple hundred dollars more. What more can I say, I Love It! Plus the Orvis Lifetime Guarantee!! How can you beat all that!
