Orvis Fly Reels


Whether you are looking to purchase your first fly-fishing reel or hoping to add a new reel to your collection, Orvis has you covered. All Orvis fly reels are constructed from the finest materials and engineered to bring you the style, strength and durability you need.


Orvis Mirage series

Orvis Mirage Series

A technologically superior reel conceived and designed from the ground up and built in New England by American craftsmen to battle angry fish and laugh in the face of corrosive saltwater environments.

The new Mirage features a sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system with an aggressive knurled drag knob that goes from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. Patent-pending ball and ramp drag mechanism provides a smooth turning drag that follows a non-linear curve as the drag knob is turned to give smoother adjustments in the fishing and fish-fighting range.

The reel is a super large arbor for increased retrieve rates and reduction in line coil.


  • Machined from strong, yet lightweight 6061 T6 aluminum barstock
  • Ergonomically designed machined aluminum handle
  • Quick release spool easily converts from left to right-hand retrieve
  • Military-spec type III hard coat anodizing
  • Titanium shaft adds strength without additional weight
  • Fully radiused reel foot prevents kinked leaders
  • Low-profile counterweight won't catch fingers or fly lines
  • Mirage VI comes in shallow and deep spool options for fastest line retrieval or maximum capacity
  • Made in the USA
  • Colours: Midnight or Pewter

Welcome to the powerful, technologically advanced, and yet still accessible new generation of Battenkill reels. This latest Battenkill Disc version is true to its heritage in looks and performance, but updated with the latest in design improvements and a significantly more powerful drag.
