(Hatch 5Plus) Hatch is one of the fast
rising stars in the fly reel market and the company has earned a number of
accolades their stacked disk drive which is more like the drag found in
conventional tackle than the single surface design employed by most fly reels.
The greater surface area helps make the company's drags smoother and more
powerful. In their lineup the 5 plus is what the company calls their "do it all
reel." It can be used for surf fishing, steelhead fishing or casting for
bonefish in the flats. The 5 plus features an aggressively ported frame and is
bolted on with a single screw that locks the spool over the sealed drag system.
The reel is available in four color combinations and each reel comes in a
collectible tin and the nicest fleece lined reel pouch we have ever seen. The 5
plus retails for 500 dollars and spare spools are 205 dollars.

reels is winning anglers over for their premium design and quality

Tools: (PLine Adaro Pliers) How many anglers on your list have struggled with the decision between a quality pair of corrosion resistant fishing pliers and the affordable, sure to rust, needlenose pliers sitting in their tool boxes?
