Love my Access III -

I own an Access II, III and VI now and love them all. The three is the prefect size for my new Access 9'6" 6wt. It perfectly balances the road and while I've never been a fan of gold before it's a perfect match.

Great drag, smooth action, cannot beat this reel for the price.
This was an anniversary gift that my husband very much appreciated. He can't wait to take it for a spin! The personalization was a plus!

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 -

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! -

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.

I bought this for my #4 7'2" split cane rod, and it balances the rod perfectly. The drag is excellent, and has really made my set up perfect

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!
