In 1874, Charles F. Orvis introduced the world’s first ventilated, narrow-spool fly reel to be mounted upright, which was the prototype for pretty much all modern fly reels. So we take reels pretty seriously around here. The launch of the new Battenkill Disc Reels represents the next leap forward for this venerable series, which goes back to the 1960s, and we’re celebrating by giving one away!
Here’s how the contest works: All you have to do is click the “Answer a Question” bar in the widget below to tell us where you would first use your new reel. One lucky winner will be able to choose from among the seven Battenkill Disc models—from a size I, which will fit a 1- to 3-weight rod, to a size V SPEY, which will handle the biggest salmon and steelhead.
If you’d like to double your chances of winning, subscribe to the Orvis Mailing list, too, using the same widget.
The contest runs through Sunday, November 27, and one winner will be chosen at random to receive the Battenkill Disc Reel of his or her choice.
The sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the USA who are 18 or older. (We apologize to our readers in Canada and overseas; Click here for an explanation of why we have to do this..)
