Popular with many experienced, traditional fly fishers for their dependability and versatility, martin Automatics feature a special slip clutch that lets you strip line freely, even when the spring is wound. They're ideal for one-handed use in a boat while paddling, rowing or poling, one touch of the ultra-responsive trigger takes up slack line with incredible speed.

    My husband wanted an automatic fly reel and they are not easy to find. Found this one on Overstock for a great price and he is thrilled!

    I know the purist wince at the prospect. This reel is great for bass and bream...takes up a lot of line in a hurry and keeps things neat while fishing in the boat. I've use similar reels for more than 40 years and I love it.
