The term “Vogue” has been used to describe anything that takes over the moment as the Lamson Velocity Fly Reelmost popular, eccentric, glamorous and trendy. Would you think it strange to apply such a term to fly fishing reels? They say there’s a “first time for everything”, so let this be the first. Lamson fly reels are the best fly fishing reels in the world. The producers of these well manufactured fishing reels are not your everyday fishermen; not that there is anything wrong with that, but they are engineers who designed a reel that not only works but is made for speed and to bestow a better fishing experience.

Waterworks-Lamson is not your ordinary fishing establishment. Their center is around product design. They take a product and perfect its design, innovate its purpose and invent another way to utilize it. For example before developing the Lamson fly reels in the mid-1990s, Waterworks-Lamson embarked upon a mountain bike design that would endure tumultuous conditions in all environments. This was a great success, but wasn’t enough. In the mid-1990s they began delving into the fly fishing market. They felt that fishing reels were inadequately put together and much too complex. Reels were too fussy, unprotected and arduous. It was time for a change.

Today after 15 years of success Waterworks-Lamson have produced limited exclusive edition five and eight weight designs of two top-selling models. Production is limited to 500 worldwide, and is engraved with serial numbers to note their position in the 500 series. The Lamson fly reels (named Litespeed) incorporate customized spool porting, an exclusive drag knob and the Vanquish veneer. The 15th anniversary editions are the reels to look out for. They’re distinctive and will be for quite some time.

With Waterworks-Lamson being concentrated totally on fly fishing products their know-how and skill drives them to commit to the best fly fishing products available. Every piece of substance used is united without compromise from the Grade 5 titanium and temperature-treated 6020 aluminum alloy to the 544 bearing bronze used in Waterworks Lamson reels. The high-tech mechanized techniques and procedures they utilize conclude with the best possible principles of exactitude, polish and functionality.

Lamson Litespeed Fly ReelAll Lamson fly reels come winded with backing and are competently rigged. Any fisherman/woman up-to-date with the latest fishing reels will admire this super light reel that equals any of today’s lightweight fly rods. Made to function with the least parts possible Waterworks-Lamson reels are designed for excellence. Their motto is “take every good idea and perfect it. Shift material around without adding anything extra.” Those words can only be the reflection of a good fishing reel and a company that knows how to make them.

I decided that Lamson deserved more time  and more info. Thus the reason for this post. A couple of days ago I published a post with 5 video that contained I think a very good run down on all The Lamson reels. Here is the first in the series with a link to the rest at the bottom of the video. Hope you enjoy. I should have a sales page up in a couple of day's.

I’ve tried other reels before, but nothing is as light and simple to use as Lamson fly reels. None of the complicated parts, but still as sturdy and functionable as other bulky reels.

I own a 2, 3.5 and 4 in this reel and have nothing but good to say for it. The drag is the same on all sizes and is super smooth. The drag will protect as light of a tippet as you choose to use, but also gets tight enough to stop salmon and steelhead. The strength to weight ratio on these reels is great. The 4 will hold spey lines provided you don’t fill it full to maximum backing capacity.

These Lamson Fly Reels are the toughest fly reels I have ever used. I normally fly fish for bass. I got the 8 weight and it preforms flawlessly with big bass and a few crappie. drag never failed even in lond runs and big jumps by 5 pound + bass.
