Default Anti reverse fly reel wanted

Does anyone know where I can get an anti reverse fly reel for salmon without having to sell my house?

Check out the Sage line of reels. I believe they are anti reverse. The 1680 I own is anti reverse I believe. The problem with fly reels and anti reverse is the drag. Getting a fly reel to be anti reverse means the drag has to be out of the arbor, or the reel has to have some truly ingenious engineering.

Valentine makes a reel called a planetary....not really anti-reverse in the true sense but it won't bust your knuckels and has a good drag. Have caught many bass, blue, bonito and albies on mine and never had issues. Check them out. I think (not sure) it would be the most economical option.

Try a Gilmore Reel manufactured in Vermont. Great reel with a real good drag system

i'd say you don't really need a AR but i suppose there's a reason you want it. i can't afford one. i almost got an abel for 500 bucks but blew it. i could ill afford it at the time but was gonna splurge. but i don't think i'd have used it 3 times. so if it's an all around reel and for larger fish as well, then it would be worth it "if ya fished for tuna or some chit on a regular basis".
