Hatch 3 Plus Finatic Fly Reel
The Hatch 3 Plus Finatic has been our chose for 3 and 4 weight reels for several years now. We prefer the large arbor version because typically backing is not a major concern where fishing with smaller rods are concerned. The 3 has smooth startup which is critical to fishing lighter tippets for large trout. The biggest issue with smaller reels is startup inertia, a fancy way of saying the reel needs to start smoothly. The mark of a good drag is what happens with the rod when the fish takes drag. Poor drags cause the rod to bounce as the fish takes drag, poor start up inertia! You of course know the rest, poor drags result in broken off fish. the other issue is that most drag systems work less smoothly as they are turned down. Sometimes the angler has no choice but to turn the drag down when fishing in weeds and other types of cover. Either land the fish by using proper rod angle or be willing to break a fish off.
