This is where the rubber meets the road my friends! If you’ve been dreaming of a reel that has the look, feel and performance of a Ferrari than look no further. Capable of running 9 through 12 weight lines, and your choice of mid or large arbor spools, this reel is one versatile hombre. If you are truly serious about saltwater or spey fishing than this is your next reel.
Specifics on the Hatch Finatic Fly Reel Series from Hatch Fly Reels:
FINATIC: a person filled with excessive enthusiasm and single minded devotion toward chasing fins with a fly
We’ve made some pretty significant changes for 2012. We’ve created a new frame and spool design called the FINATIC. A play on words you’ll understand the second you see the reel. We’ve also added a new size in the 1 PLUS. This little reel rounds out our line by offering the 0–2 weight crowd an option they’ve never been given by Hatch in the past. The new designs are lighter, just as durable as they’ve ever been, and more stylish than anything we’ve done prior. And the best news is that the new FINATIC is backwards compatible to our previous MONSOON and PULSE models. Meaning, the frames and spools are interchangeable with what you already own. The goal was to update the image of our reels — not make them obsolete. We hope you enjoy the new reels as much as we like making them. Cheers!
