Hatch Outdoors

A pioneering spirit and defiant, in-your-face attitude have been at the heart of Hatch Outdoors since inception, and it is that same stubborn drive to acheive that has brought this company to the top of the fly fishing food chain. A Hatch Finatic reel is a thing of beauty, from the almost comically diminutive 1 Plus to the impressive 12 Plus big game model. Advanced machining in their own Vista, California facility allows Hatch to create mind-bogglingly light reels that look almost too delicate to handle the stresses of fighting large gamefish...but handle them they do, and then some. Advanced design features like Stacked Disc drags and spot polishing and anodizing place Hatch at the forefront of reel technology, while old-fashioned attention to detail and US-made quality ensure you're getting every bit of what you paid for.

Hatch Outdoors Finatic 7 Plus Reels
"Best Salt water reel"

I bought this for a trip to Cuba, I have used it since for my fall salmon rod and it works awesome, the drag is super smooth and handles large fish.It looks great and sounds nice when a fish is pulling line.If I was to recommend a reel for an 8 weight rod this is the one.Love It

Hatch Outdoors Finatic 7 Plus Generation 2 Reels
"Great Reel!"

I bought the 7 Plus with a large arbor and spare spool. It is my first Hatch reel and it worked flawlessly on a recent trip to Kola Peninsula. The drag was smooth and held strong on salmon. I accidentally laid the reel in the sand a few times did not have any issues. These are well built.
