Hatch Outdoors at MRO

Mad River Outfitters now a full-line dealer for Hatch Outdoors fly reels and accessories!

It's a little like a disease or addiction. Your every thought is consumed by an insatiable need to chase fish on the fly. It's a state of mind that transcends the boundaries of normalcy and into the realm of abnormality. It's obvious you're sick- but who the hell wants to be cured of this affliction?

You're a Finatic!

By've heard of or seen the Finatic Series of Fly Reels- 

* Machined Reel Seat- The Original. A sold is always stronger than two pieces attached together. Also, by eliminating the screws you've eliminated the corrosion points.

* Dimension in the Frame- Hatch machined dimension in the frame to increase rigidity, strength and reduce lateral flex. With the reel and spool together you get virtually no lateral flex when you push/pull the two. This means the reel tracks truer and it eliminates the spool wobbling in high-speed runs.

* Frame/Spool Connection- Making a positive frame-to-spool connection is essential. On Hatch reels, they call it the "power flower". This unique design feature locks both together creating a bomb-proof fit.

* Cranks and Counterbalance- Unlike many manufacturers whose counterbalance is merely cosmetic, Hatch has made the two pieces the same weight to achieve true balance in the spool.

* Drag- They wanted it sealed- hence the drag cassette. They've employed a multi-disc stack in all models that is comprised of Rulon and precision stamped stainless steel discs. With multi-disc drag, you are applying braking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces rather than one-to-one surface braking on most drag systems today. This system virtually eliminates start up inertia and stick slip problems.

* Hook Guard- Keep those hooks tucked into the arbor of the reel and out of the way of your hands.

* Machined Finish- At Hatch, they don't polish their reels. Everyone else does, but they like the machined look. You can see the witness marks and high quality machining. No buff outs or cover-ups. It just didn't make sense to cover up what others can't match. It's more difficult, takes more time, but it's worth it.

* Spool Tension Nut- Designed to be easily taken on and off, with our without full gloves. The nut is press fit into the spool so it won't fall out into the water or your gear bag.

* Made in the USA- say no more! Simple.
