Islander reels have been a favourite of BC fishermen for many years now. There is no mistaking the scream of the Islander IR’s clicker-pawl drag when a big fish takes off, a sound that is music to the ears of many fly-fishermen. The IR or Islander Ratchet has five pre-set drag settings to help slow down the toughest fish. Tight tolerances on the machined aluminum bodies and spools make for a very smooth and trouble-free package. Both large and standard arbor spools are available for this reel and are interchangeable.
