Hatch Outdoors Finatic 5 Plus Machined Fly Fishing Reel

The 5 Plus Reel is the latest version of the original Hatch Outdoors model 56, the reel upon which Hatch built its reputation. Billed as the workhorse of the Hatch line, the 5+ is true to that moniker in every way. It's versatile enough to be most anglers' only reel, capable of running after baby trout without snapping your tippet, then jumping up to 7-weight line for saltwater without breaking a sweat. Hatch's sealed multi-disc synthetic drag is smooth and silky at low pressure, but can and will stop a mature bonefish like a brick wall when you need it to. At 6.5 ounces, it's a light reel, although admittedly not as feathery as some other top-end 5-to-6-weight reels. That said, the 5 Plus is not a 5-6, it's a 5-7..and we can say with certainty that this reel will work and keep working when everyone around you seems to be suffering from gear malfunctions. We'll happily trade an ounce or so of extra material for a worry-free mind (and a trouble-free day on the water) anytime. Frame and spool machined from solid aluminum Reel seat and frame are one piece for weight reduction, strength, and corrosion resistance Sealed multi-disc synthetic drag cassette for reliability 5-to-7-weight capacity for wide-range versatility Made in the USA.
