The Billy Pate Tarpon Fly Reel is the gold standard for the classic heavy-duty saltwater fly reel.

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.
