    The Billy Pate Bonefish Fly Reel is the gold standard for the classic heavy freshwater and saltwater fly reel.  No other reel has matched the Billy Pate's durability and dependability day in day out, year after year, regardless of conditions, locale or species. This precision piece of equipment is designed and constructed to withstand the most demanding fly fishing environments. As with all reels that leave Ted's shop, the Billy Pate is virtually maintenance free.

    This custom version of the Billy Pate Bonefish reel features an engraving of a Steelhead rather than the standard Bonefish. The Bonefish reel is ideal for both flats fishing and big river fishing for Steelhead so why sport a gorgeous engraving but of the wrong species? For anglers more interested in Chromers, this turns a great reel into the perfect tool for the job.

    While there are over 200 world records that attest to the Billy Pate’s performance, you don't have to be interested in records to appreciate this reel. This is a reel that you will be forever proud to own, use, and abuse.

    Set the drag and reel. Don't worry about palming too hard. Don't worry about jerking. Once your fish is on the reel, just keep your rod up and reel or just listen to the reel sing. There's PLENTY of drag. Old pros can scoff and strip, but there's plenty of retrieve per revolution. This will be your favorite reel.
