    The Orvis Battenkill I Reel gives small stream anglers the perfect combination of high quality, modern machining without the added weight of an unnecessary drag system. The Battenkill I Reel is simplicity exemplified and perfected. The Orvis Battenkill Fly Reel has been in the fly fishing industry for generations. Orvis has updated the new Battenkill to feature a new 4 position internal click and pawl drag system and increased the spool size. Simple design and flawless construction make this the perfect click-and-pawl fly reel for nearly any freshwater fishing situation. A minimalist's dream, the all-new Battenkill features a classically styled, yet technically enhanced, four-position click-and-pawl drag system that is adjusted internally and is designed to work in tandem with the palm of your hand on those sizzling, screaming runs.

    Constructed with a narrow spool for less line stacking on retrieve and a larger spool diameter for higher line retrieval rates. The ultra-lightweight fly reel design balances perfectly on shorter rods. Machined from heavy-duty bar-stock aluminum for added durability. Easily adjustable left- or right-hand retrieve. Highlighted by laser-engraved logos and a cool black nickel color.


    • 4 Position Internal Click and Pawl Drag System
    • Larger Spool Diameter
    • Constructed of Machined Bar-Stock Aluminum
    • Battenkill I for line weights 1-3, 2.8 oz., 2 3/4" diameter

    I have a 6’6”, 2wt rod and the Battenkill 1 feels great on it. The clicking drag noise is a little louder than I would prefer but it doesn’t affect the reel’s performance. I like it.

    Perfect 3wt Creek Reel
    Nathan W (Richmond, VA) | September 27th, 2021
    The Orvis Battenkill I Reel is the perfect reel for a 3wt creek setup. Weighing in at only 2.8 oz., the reel balances well with many shorter and lighter rods. The click-and-paw drag system combined with the reel's compact and simplistic design recreates the look, sounds, and feel of a traditional trout fly reel without compromising any functionality. Overall, the Battenkill is the perfect small trout reel, combining function with style.

    Great little reel
    Chad (Colorado) | March 6th, 2021
    Hav this reel on my little backcountry fiberglass rod and it works great. Haven't tested it on any big fish, but wouldn't really expect to catch any using this setup anyway

    Connor (CA) | September 25th, 2020
    I have this reel for my 7'6ft 3wt and absolutely love it. Very simplistic which is all you need when fishing small backcountry streams. I am planning on purchasing a 1wt rod soon and this reel will be my go to choice. You wont be sorry grabbing this reel.

    Great reel
    Collin Swisher (MI) | September 16th, 2020
    I got this reel for my butterstick 0.5 wt, I accidently ordered the wrong hand reel but with a quick opening up of the face and switching the gear around I was able to get it to the right hand for me. Amazing reel for ultralight flyrods

    My all-time favorite Click-Pawl
    Chris (Louisiana) | May 2nd, 2020
    This is my all-time favorite ultralight fly reel. I purchased my first to pair with a full flex 2-wt back in the late 90s and would still be using it, had it not been lost in a shipping incident a few years back. I've since replaced it with the upgraded version and highly recommend. It's a great little reel and more sturdily built than most in its price range. If you're fishing a 1, 2 or 3 wt get this reel.
