Hatch Gen 2 Finatic 11 Plus Fly Reel - Mid or Large Arbor
We designed this reel with one thing in mind—Tarpon. The goal was to create a larger reel that bridged the gap between the 9 Plus and 12 Plus models. We also wanted to make sure it had an oversized handle for greater grip control when fighting those big silver critters. The mid arbor option is also great for spey rods from 13.5' to 14.5'.

BEAD BLASTED MIST FINISH
NEW! We've incorporated a mist finish on our entire lineup of reels. Misting creates smoother edges and provides for a more consistent non-reflective finish throughout. Plus it looks really damn cool!
CRANKS and COUNTERBALANCE
NEW! We've incorporated an Ultraflon sleeve that covers the aluminum shaft and separates it from the aluminum crank handle, eliminating the chance for galvanic corrosion.
FRAME SPOOL CONNECTION
Creating a bombproof frame-to-spool connection is essential for maintaining strength, and true-spin consistency.
LIP SEALS BEARINGS
NEW! The amount of time anglers spend in the water has increased dramatically, so we've added lip seals and sealed bearings as a one-two punch to protect against the elements and a whole new level of water protection.
A multi-disc drag cassette comprised of Rulon® and precision stamped stainless steel discs applies braking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces. This virtually eliminates start up inertia and stick-slip problems.
