Saracione, Joe - Islamorada #12 Fly Reel

For sale here is one of Joe Saracione's stellar creations (made entirely in the USA) -- the Islamorada #12 lever action fly reel, designed for dealing with big tarpon, giant trevally, and other big game fish. This reel is set up for right hand retrieve and is in unfished condition.

The drag system is comprised of multiple carbon fiber discs and is controlled during the play of a fish with a repeatable lever action control arm. Further drag refinement is controlled by a preset “Range Set” knob. The drag washers were hand lapped to make the working surfaces perfectly flat providing ultra smooth drag performance. The multi-disc drag system provides tremendous strength and incredibly smooth performance from the first initial pull without any start-up torque to the longest sustained run. The reel's bearing is a large stainless steel, deep groove race, sealed ball bearing designed to take heavy radial and axial loads. 

The reel features a large arbor spool with a large easy palming rim for added control. All components are made from aircraft quality 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy and are anodized with a beautiful corrosion resistant finish while all other components are polished stainless steel. The handle grasp is made of delrin. The reel features a two-tone clicker system for incoming and outgoing sound and are convertible for LHW or RHW reeling.

All components were precision machined in Joe's shop in Sandy, Oregon.
