Bates Fishing Co.
At TackleDirect, we proudly sell fishing tackle from Bates Fishing Co. This is a brand born from the same lineage as Seaborn, renowned for crafting exceptional fly and inshore rod and reels. Bates continues this legacy, delivering top-notch quality craftsmanship and unparalleled customer service.
Bates Fishing Co. takes pride in its rich heritage, drawing inspiration from generations of hard-working individuals who have excelled in various sectors of business and public service. This legacy of dedication and passion is evident in every meticulously crafted fishing reel they offer, which includes a remarkable range of high-end fishing reels that redefine precision and durability.
Bates reels are milled from 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, renowned for its corrosion resistance and unmatched purity. Enduring harsh saltwater environments and handling heavy drag with ease, these reels are built to outlast generations of angling.
Say goodbye to frequent replacements - Bates reel frames last 5-10 years in extreme corrosive environments compared to 6 months to 2 years for die-cast reels. Anodized for added protection and an attractive look, these reels are your reliable companion for a lifetime of fishing adventures.
Bates Fishing Co. has revolutionized the fishing industry with its CNC milled aluminum low-profile 150 reel frame. Now, they take innovation to the next level with the Hundo - a 5-ounce, 100 sized reel, meticulously crafted to perfection.
