A re-release of an iconic reel that's ruled rivers for decades, the Pflueger Medalist Fly Reel lets you get a taste of fly fishing history when you're hauling in trout or steelhead. The click-and-pawl system, which originated in the 19th century, is valued for its simplicity and reliability (stories abound of decades-old click-and-pawl reels that still perform like new to this day). Instead of a drag system, you control the line by applying pressure with you palm. Not only does this mean less moving parts to worry about and no fiddling with the drag mid-fight, it also gives you a more direct connection to the fish. If you're looking for a more intimate angling experience, or just want a reel you can rely on for years and years to come, give the Medalist a shot.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
