    The 2020 Lamson Guru S is the third generation of the legendary Guru Series, and is a masterpiece of machining with incredible good looks. The Lamson Guru has always been the benchmark for proven dependability and durable performance. This Lamson Guru S -5+ Fly Reel is the perfect choice for any 4, 5, or 6wt trout rod. The New Lamson Guru S has been redesigned to eliminate weight where it is not required, while improving upon the bulletproof, tough as nails conical drag system. The Guru S is the most popular, lowest-priced fully machined reel with updated spool geometry for better retrieve rates, open porting to reduce weight and improve line drying and an integrated counter balance for structural stability. Lamson Guru S sets the standard for CNC machined quality and unmatched reliability at a great price. Manufactured in the U.S.A. and assembled in Boise, Idaho.

    We’ve always believed that form shouldn’t just follow function, but be inspired by it, and that good design emanates from a harmonious expression of both. Where fly reels are concerned, the basic parameters - weight, retrieve rate, line storage, drag torque, ergonomics - each must be balanced against the other to build a high-performing reel, and collectively provide the basis for the design.

    By far the most important of these are weight and retrieve rate, because the ratio of the two define what is considered a large arbor reel. Expressed simply, think of these two parameters as retrieve rate per ounce, and hence the Holy Grail of fly reel design is an architecture which yields the lightest structure possible for a given diameter, without sacrificing reliability and durability.

    Enter the completely re-designed Guru S Fly Reels, featuring an enhanced spool machining technique, focusing material only where it's needed, resulting in a significantly lighter and higher performing reel that any of its predecessors. But most importantly, the form and styling clearly flows from the same place; allowing the dimensions of structure and function to inspire beauty and reliability. You will simply not find a higher quality or more beautiful reel in this price range than the new Lamson Guru S Fly Reel.

    Another Great Lamson Reel
    Glen (CA) | April 18th, 2023
    Just received my Guru S and what a great reel. This is my third Lamson. I also own the Liquid and the Remix 3 Pack. The all machined Guru S -5+ in Blaze looks great and feels well balanced with my Sage Sonic 9' 5wt which I also purchased at Reelflyrod. Can't wait to to try it out on the water.

    Great Reel! Hard to beat a Lamson! I own the Liquid, Remix and now a Guru S. Love it! Great quality and the drag is perfect. The Olive green is beautiful. Works as well as it looks.

    Guru S 5+
    Dan (Iowa) | December 20th, 2021
    This is my 3rd Lamson Guru. I have two of the current generation and one of the previous. I also own some of the Liquid reels. These are a great value for the price. They are fully machined, light weight, durable and have an excellent drag system. I feel I will have many seasons of use from this new Guru, just as I have with all my other Lamson reels.

    Robert Franz (Raleigh, NC) | July 14th, 2021
    This reel works well with my 5 wt rod. It is very light and has a good drag and retrieve. I also like the looks of the olive green. Good price for a well built reel.

    Paired the Lamson -5+ On my 4wt. Good looking on the Loomis IMX. Quick test out on the lake with a wooly bugger and was ripping bluegill, rocky, and largemouth. Was able to play with the drag and solid adjustment. Smoooooth. Best bang for the buck at this price point. Looking forward to western streams this summer with this one!

    I wanted a mid priced reel that would look good and still perform well for trout fishing. The olive green color looks very and feels well built.
