Orvis SSR Disc Reel
The Swing, Step, Repeat (SSR) Disc Spey Reel is designed to match both the two-handed fly-fishing rods of varying length and line weights, and the methodical, slowed-down pace of today’s two-handed anglers. Available in three standard sizes that let anglers fine tune their setup’s balance, each reel begins its life as a solid chunk of bar-stock aluminum which is then machined to tight tolerances. Critical to the SSR’s design is the reel’s unique porting. Not only do these ports allow backing and running lines to dry after rain-soaked river sessions, they drain a dunked reel quickly to help eliminate the dreaded ‘ice donut.’ That feature alone often goes unnoticed, until temps drop deep and everyone else’s reels are freezing up. Everything about these reels screams stopping power, with a Hydros®-proven sealed disc drag that protects lighter trout spey-sized tippets on the lower settings, yet can be dialed up to stun mode when a large specimen finds the heavy water. The easy-to-access drag knob even features a tactile outdent so you can feel the drag position without taking your eyes off the fish’s alleged location. A radiused, rounded reel foot allows you to bend a leader around its smooth edges without kinking leaders. Size III model is ideal for 3–5-wt. trout spey systems and lighter two-handed applications.
