One Word: Drag. Shilton Reels undeniably have the best drag of any fly reels.

Trusted by guides worldwide in some of the most extreme fishing conditions, such as the Seychelles, Shilton Reels were designed with one thing in mind – to enable fly anglers to fight and catch the strongest, toughest saltwater and freshwater gamefish in the world.

A premier sought-after South African brand, Shilton Reels were previously unavailable in the US market. Due to rising recognition and demand, Shilton and Flymen formed a partnership to bring Shilton Reels to the US.

Shilton Reels’ frames and spools are manufactured using top quality aluminum bar stock and the other components are machined from stainless steel. Polymers, carbon fiber, and cork are used to create the all-important clutch systems that take Shilton Reels’ drag to the next level and make We Stop Fish a reality.

NEW Full Color Anodized SL Series Reels Now Available for Pre-Order!

When the very first saltwater SL reels were introduced to the market, they were an instant success. All major guiding operations and their guides, retail stores and the general fly fishing public began talking about a new reel designed and manufactured in South Africa at a very competitive price that was up to the task of handling harsh saltwater environments and tackle busting fish. That was sixteen years ago, and the SL range is still rated among the best.

Featuring a custom-processed cork disc drag, and the same high quality anodizing used for all the Shilton Reel ranges, the SL series quickly became the choice reel for many large guiding operations due to its simple and effective design. Constant use and time in the field is the only real test. Alphonse Fishing Company, Tourette, and Fly Leaders (to name just three) choose Shilton as their reel of choice.

Now available with an incoming and outgoing click, in sizes SL4 to SL8 for line weights 5/6 to 14/16.

The SL Series is available in the standard black and titanium colors, as well as the NEW Full Color Anodized Reels, available in red, blue, purple, burnt gold, and turquoise.
