In 2015 we began a new partnership with Aspen Reels, and we look forward to matching these with our custom fiberglass and graphite fly rods for up to a 15% savings.

In 2009, California-based Barrel Service Company established Aspen Reels and set out to design a simple, classic and tough fly reel they could back with a lifetime warranty.  We like simple and classic, and we love bulletproof reels with drag systems we can trust no matter where we wet a line, and for any fish species taken on a fly rod.  All the reels are rated for saltwater play.

  • CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum bar stock
  • 4 stainless ball bearings
  • Hollow Ultra-Strength 7068 main shaft
  • Fully sealed drag mechanism
  • Extreme-Temperature PTFE drag system
  • Reel foot is machined as one with body
