Wade fly reels are not only beautiful workhorses ready to take on the meanest game fish in the ocean, they are a reflection of who we are, our approach to the fish we catch and a lifetime spent on the water.

If on the trip of your life you run into the fish of your dreams, show some respect. Catch it using a reel that will last you a lifetime, just like the memory of that fish.


Our first series of reels have been designed for the harsh saltwater environment of the Indian Ocean Atolls.
The closest freshwater is thousands of miles away, so you’d better have a well-anodized reel or the salt crystals will literally eat it up.
The fish found in these waters are some of the biggest, meanest and strongest game fish targeted by anglers.
For a reel to perform here it needs to meet the highest standards and perform on all levels.
Guides demand a flawlessly functional reel.
