Ross Reels Animas Disc Drag Fly Reel
When we opened our fly shop in 1997, we had Ross Reels... we were the only game in town and it was awesome. As the fly fishing boom pressed on, Ross changed their look and their style, and we did not like the way they looked with our rods, so we stopped selling them. Recently however, Ross Reels (no affiliation with JP Ross other than name) is under new management and JP has close connections with upper management at the firm. The new Colorado is perfect for our rods, and we are so proud to have them back.

The 2019 Animas takes the time-proven features that made the original Animas a guide favorite and incorporates new machined features that bring it into the modern era of Ross.
A fully-redesigned frame and spool are highlights of the new Animas. The spool shows off the cutting-edge manufacturing techniques Ross Reels has developed, delivering a design that is incredibly strong and visually stunning. The Animas also re-joins the family by incorporating an ultra-light canvas phenolic handle which gets tackier when wet. A new trouble-free spool release yields zero-maintenance performance, allowing the Animas to be ready for any fresh or saltwater excursion.
The frame is accented by a machined silhouette of the Colorado mountains in Ross Reels’ backyard. Its uniquely ported design and structural profile are eye-catching industry firsts. The two-tone drag knob sports an updated aesthetic with a lower profile and increased grip. An improved composite drag system delivers more power in an established Ross design used and loved by more than 80,000 fly anglers the world over.
