L.L. Bean’s Double L Reels are loaded with modern features yet have a classic fly-reel look. They’re machined out of bar stock, not made from casts, The reels are easily converted to serve right or left-handed anglers and the in/out clicker can be disengaged for silent running. The largest model, #4 for 9/10-weight lines, has stainless drive gears. Models 1, 2 and 3 (for lines 2/3, 5/6 and 7/8, respectively) have brass gears, so if you’re going to use them in marine environments you’ll have to wash them afterward. (From $135 to $175; 800-809-7057)
