In honor of its 50th anniversary, the USA-made click-and-pawl Orvis CFO III Fly Reel is inspired by renowned fly reel designer Stan Bogdan's 1971 revival of the timeless, ventilated-port design first patented by Charles Frederick Orvis in 1874. Worthy of display and even more fun to fish, this classic click-and-pawl is an elegantly simple and effective design with the same black frame and spool with silver accents as Bogdan's 1971 icon. Features incude an easy left-to-right hand retrieve conversion. Made with durable, corrosion-resistant type III anodizing. Reel case included. Spool is not backwards compatible with previous C.F.O. reels of earlier production.
