On the exterior, the Brookie features distinct porting and a weatherproof finish. Aside from giving it a unique style, this precision machining process eliminates virtually all excess weight from the fly reel making it one of the lightest fully machined American-made reels available. This reduced weight, combined with the superior dependability of 6061 bar stock aluminum, provides a reel that is as bulletproof as it is light. From the raw materials and the machining to the innovative spool tension system, every element of the Brookie fly reel is built to ensure a lifetime of use and performance that won’t be compromised by long days on the water. Available in four models for 0-to 5-weight lines, the Brookie Series is an achievement in light tackle and the ideal complement to today’s ultra-lightweight fly rods. More traditional anglers will appreciate its straightforward design and sure reliability, while new-school anglers will love the look and feel of the reel. Both will appreciate the seamless line retrieve. Regardless of what draws you to the reel, Galvan’s Brookie Series is certain to change the future of the lightweight fly reel.
