Islander's product line of premium quality reels has evolved during the past decade to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing sport of fly fishing. Lighter rods and thinner backing require reels that are extremely light and strong. Salt-water flyfishing demands reels that can perform at incredibly high speeds, and withstand salt and sand. Sophisticated manufacturing equipment and computer design techniques are used in the production of Islander fly reels. Islander's care and attention to detail assures that all of their precision reels meet the needs of today's fly fishermen.
