    The new Ross Animas Fly Reel takes the time-proven features that made the original Animas a guide favorite, while incorporating machining features that bring it into the modern era of Ross. A fully-redesigned frame and spool are highlights of the new Animas. The spool shows off the cutting-edge manufacturing techniques Ross Reels has developed, delivering a design that is incredibly strong and visually stunning. You will not find a more beautiful, powerful, durable, or functional fly reel in the sub $300 price range. 

    The Animas also joins the family by incorporating an ultra-light canvas phenolic handle which gets tackier when wet. A new trouble-free spool release yields zero-maintenance performance, allowing the Animas to be ready for any fresh or saltwater excursion. The frame is accented by a machined silhouette of the Colorado mountains in Ross Reels’ backyard. Its uniquely ported design and structural profile are eye-catching industry firsts. The two-tone drag knob sports an updated aesthetic with a lower profile and increased grip. An improved composite drag system delivers more power in an established Ross design loved by more than 80,000 fly anglers the world over.

    My third Animas Reel
    Floyd5k (Southwest) | March 19th, 2024
    I own many Ross reels but have an affinity for the Animas. The build quality, porting and drag system are top notch for the price point. There are many competitors within the Animas price range but I haven't yet found an equivalent. You will not be disappointed with its performance. Kudos to ReelFlyRod for fast shipping!

    This is an excellent reel in 4/5 that pairs perfectly with my Sage Sonic 4wt. Beautifully designed and made in the USA. The arbor size is small compared to other comparable options. What it lacks in arbor size is reconciled in sheer good looks. It’s a time tested reel that if taken care of will last a lifetime.

    Reeeeel Nice
    Brandon Johnson (Bishop, CA.) | June 5th, 2020
    Got this reel for my Superfine Trout Bum in 4wt. Pictures online don’t do it justice. I’ve had a couple fish on it so far and Man is it nice. Reel Fly Rod was awesome as usual. Got a great deal with my Reel Cash points. Psyched. Thank you guys.

    Jacob Lewis (Colorado) | April 13th, 2020
    A picture of this reel simply doesn't show how amazing it is. The machining is absolutely fantastic. There is NO wobble in the spool at all. It is rock solid. The drag knob turns extremely easily, and the drag is very smooth. I matched this reel (loaded with Orvis Hydros line it weighs only 5.5 oz) to my Redington Hydrogen 4wt 8ft6in rod, and it is truly unbelievably light. I highly recommend this reel to anyone who is considering it. Just get it, you'll be happy. And, it's a Made in America product.

    Picked this reel up to pair with my new 4wt. Have not fished it yet, but it is aesthetically pleasing and looks well made/durable.
