Fly Reels


Put simply, a fly reel is a mechanical device used to store fly line, backing and leader. Most reels today feature the popular mid to large arbour design which reduce line memory, have a high speed retrieve and have low start up inertia. These reels often have a smooth operating disc drag system. Disc drags are vastly superior to usually smoother than the older click and pawl drag systems but do not provide the exhilarating sound that is such a pleasing part of battling feisty fish. But given that most disc drag systems are sealed and waterproof this type of braking device makes the most sense.

The Blue Charm Angling Co carries the finest reels available. There is little doubt that Waterworks-Lamson makes some of the best reels on the market and there is something here for all budgets.

Orvis reels are indeed similar to the range and choice in quality and application.

We are proud to offer a comprehensive selection of reels from Sage.

At Blue Charm Angling Co, Nautilus has become a leading brand in fly fishing reels.

Hardy reels are here for the traditionalist. 

The shop is St. John's only dealer for WWL, Ovris, Sage, Nautilus, Hardy and Galvan.




Sage Orvis Nautilus






Galvan Waterworks/



Featuring a unique modified full frame with exposed dual palming rim, the EVOKE lets you add fingertip or palm pressure from either side of the reel as you feel exactly how much it will take to turn that fish. The EVOKE utilizes the same proven fish-stopping carbon drag design as the Sage 6000 series, with an intuitive drag knob with detents from 1 to 39 so you have twice the finesse when tuning-in desired drag resistance. Stainless steel dowel pins give the reel its staunch rigidity, and also help form a full frame line guard that eliminates any errant line mishaps.

6200 Series
Built around our proven Sealed Carbon System (SCS) Drag, the new 6200 Series is fully machined with cold forged, tempered 6061-T6 aluminum. The large, easy-to-grab One Revolution Drag Knob provides 40 detented drag settings, giving an adjustable and repeatable drag resolution to effectively control the full range of fishing scenarios. The 6200 features a widened palming rim, and the large, vented arbor ensures a high retrieve rate. With a super rigid frame-to-spool connection that delivers full confidence during high-speed runs, 6200 Series is the saltwater and big game angler's go-to reel.

4600 Series
This all-new large arbor reel features a notably larger-diameter spool and arbor for faster line retrieval and consistently smooth drag during battle. Its larger size contributes to added rigidity and strength for overall performance. The inner arbor is concave for greater line and backing capacity. Lightweight and streamlined, the 4600 series has a powerful 3:1 drag ratio that gives it the same performance as a traditional centered disc drag system but in a smaller, lighter drag package. Topped off with a broad palming rim for added control, this one doesn't get by on good looks alone.

Sage's Domain series reel

is a high-performance full-frame reel. Its line-protecting full frame removes any remote concern about running line or backing ever being pinched, and the one revolution drag adjustment brings added levels of control and stopping power not found on full frame reels from an earlier era. Light, strong and elegant, the DOMAIN is quite literally the best of the past and present. And that makes for one very exciting future on the water.

Introducing the first of two all-new and price-savvy relatives to the 4200, the fully machined 3200. A bit smaller in diameter than the 4200 but still a true large arbor, it has the same concave spool surface as the 4200 for optimal line capacity and drag-assisting smoothness. Lightweight, extremely durable and packed with features you’d expect on higher priced reels, this one just goes out and quietly performs day after day.

The unique Torque reel, was the first reel released with the Torque drag system. Its original style and unique porting has solidified Galvan’s reputation as a leading innovator in the industry. 

The visually striking appearance of the Torque is a result of the unique cutouts on the frame, spool, drag knob and foot. This design is not only aesthetic but also structural as it significantly reduces the weight of the reel while maintaining strength and increasing rigidity. The rounded rims on both spool and frame enhance durability to better withstand impact during extreme angling conditions.

Rush Light

The Rush Light’s quality, ruggedness and ultra-smooth, state of the art, Torque drag system does not disappoint. This high value, mid-price, large arbor reel has all the technological hallmarks of its counterpart the Torque, while capturing the essence of the original Rush.

Built with the same inner components, technical features and materials the Torque has been recognized for, the Rush Light offers top of the line performance and reliability at a mid-line price.

The ruggedness and durable construction are the most prominent feature of the Rush Light. It can take one beating after another and continue to perform with flawless reliability. Whether its the one reel you buy for life, the reel you use to guide clients or in the quiver of the hardest core anglers the Rush light does not disappoint in form or function.

The ultra-lightweight Brookie Series from Galvan is an entirely new kind of fly reel. The difference lies in Galvan’s new Click-Ball Tension System, a foolproof departure from traditional click pawl reels. Delivering customizable spool tension with minimal moving parts, the Click-Ball System strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and versatility. 

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.

Arx has a full cage frame that encapsulates the spool to prevent line from escaping or snagging in critical areas. Normally a configuration like this would do a good job at preventing line fouling, but would preclude palming the reel.  Arx is carefully milled on the bottom third of the reel to expose a functional palming section. Even the drag knob has been designed to provide optimal grip without exposing a portion of the reel to line fouling.

Force SL
Force SL (Super Light) fly fishing reels utilize a combination of subtle space-frame and complex CNC carved cross sections. The vanquish-style integrated foot/frame raises the reels’s center of mass making casting smoother and contributing to both a reduction in weight and greater rigidity. The high-grip drag knob makes fine-tuning the world’s smoothest drag system even easier. SL fishing reels are finished in a unique clear Hard Alox.

Litespeed Series IV

2014 is Litespeed re-loaded. Narrower drag geometry has translated into a flatter spool surface for less knuckle dragging. A more aggressive drag knob and structural refinements such as the curved arbor have made a light reel even lighter, and this curved arbor stores backing into a “diameter well” and keeps “working line” at a maximum radius to optimize everything we love about large arbor reels. Most notably, the spool/stripping arm geometry  has been changed to do a better job of preventing snags and line damage.

The Guru is a fully machined reel. The signature arm-style element on the frame combines with open spokes to maximize structural strength and minimize weight. As with Lamson's other reels, Guru features true large arbor ratios. Guru is available in 4 weight through 10 weight, and shares identical drag design and components with the more expensive reels. Guru is finished with a clear type 2 anodize.

A fusion between the free-form structures of a cast spool and the mechanical integrity of a CNC-machined case, Remix is a hybrid.The case, CNC-machined here in the U.S. from 6061 bar-stock aluminum, delivers maximum structural rigidity and durability all wrapped in a harder, brighter finish.  The spool, pressure cast with radiused compound curves, near zero-radius inside corners and a precise fit and finish, delivers both value and sex appeal. Remix brings together the best of CNC machining and pressure-cast technologies.  In addition to the US-made case, all critical drag components are CNC-machined here in the U.S.
