From Hardy and Greys On The Angel 2 Fly Reel
The Hardy Angel 2 fly reel takes this renowned marque just that little bit further. Improvements have kept this reel in pole position as one of the world’s finest. Equally at home on rivers and still-waters, the range goes from the 2/3 weight (perfect for brooks) up to the 11/12 weight (which handles the biggest salmon). A complete range for every fly fishing situation.

We could call the Hardy Angel 2 fly reel, a brilliant fly reel made even better. There are two Angel reels designated “Featherweight” and these have been designed for small and light fly rods with an extremely sensitive click-check system to protect even the lightest of tippets. This concealed check-system, has improved the already dependable Rulon drag.
The now Tool-less conversion from right to left hand retrieve speeds things up significantly.
Please note: The Hardy Angel 2 Fly reel series is not intended for saltwater use.
Just for fun, we added this video of a gentleman fly fishing with the Hardy Angel 2 fly rod, a Hardy Marksman Reel and some GPX fly line. Good Times!
