The Story

There are times when less is more—the new Mirage LT fly reel is everything its big brother is, but designed to balance perfectly with lighter rods and yet still offer legendary Mirage engineering and performance. Mirage LT features a lighter version of the sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system that adjusts from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. With zero start-up inertia and precise low-end control it eliminates line shock and protects light tippets with the same silky smooth drag, and yet offers more stopping power than you will ever need for trout, bass, pike, musky, or carp. 30% lighter and 30% narrower, the Mirage LT is made in New Hampshire by the same skilled American craftsmen that build the Mirage. The LT offers the same increased retrieve rates, reduction in line coil, and is machined from the same strong, yet lightweight, 6061 T6 aluminum barstock as the Mirage. Ergonomically designed, machined aluminum handle. Quick-release spool easily converts from left- to right-hand retrieve. Type II anodizing. Titanium shaft reduces weight and adds durable power transmission. Fully radiused reel foot prevents kinked leaders. Low-profile counterweight won't catch fingers or fly lines. In midnight with silver accents, olive with silver accents, and red/white/blue.

Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super, affordable reel! The Mirage LT's are great reels. Super drag system and much more affordable than the original Mirage. Need to have this drag system on bigger fish - steelhead, larger salmon, etc. Also perfect for in-shore saltwater fishing - bonefish, permit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth operation Just got this reel as part of a new Euro Nymph package. Have spent two days trout fishing on the lower Deschutes and am very pleased with the reel. Drag is very smooth and easily handles the fish. Line winds back onto the reel very nicely, no stacking. Nor does the euro nymph line pop out of the spool between the spool and reel frame. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Design Love the way spool attaches to reel by turning an accessible knob. No little levers to push with finger tips, which can be difficult in frigid weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid reel Mirage LT is about 1 oz lighter than the Hydros I was using. Great drag but I haven’t hooked anything big enough to make it sing. Only used it for trout so far. It’s the LT II with 4 WT line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, for....... Absolutely incredible reels! Solid. Smooth. Reliable. LOVE the color options, which need to not be "Limited Edition", but rather an every day staple. Wish (and please listen to this Orvis) they would offer these color options in the standard Mirage!!!!!!! Prime example, this orange LT is slicker than an oil coated street. Perfect match for the new Mission Two Hand rods. However.......these LT reels are too light for two hand rods. With those longer rods, you need a reel that is more substantial and a reel that carries a bit more weight. This helps balance the longer rods and eliminate the feeling of being "tip" heavy. Get this Orange in the standard Mirage and I'll have a half dozen of them!!!!!!
