Knucker Fly Reel is a great fly reel with large arbour performance to match the 10# fly rods we sell. Aluminium Die-cast and anodized in black on both the frame and spool; gives the reel a lighter feel. The advanced Teflon disk brake drag with red disk cover will handle most fish and is easy to swap the crank direction by flipping the bearing in the spool by following the instructions sent with every reel. Swapping the spool is easy with a simple release latch system.
The Knucker was a kind of water dragon, living in what were referred to as knuckerholes in Sussex, England. The word comes from the Old English nicor which means “water monster” and is used in the poem Beowulf.
