Every season, new fly fishing gear and tackle floods fly shops and the online world hoping to grasp the attention of anglers and customers. We pick some of our favorites from the WorldCast Anglers Fly Shop, put it in the hands our guides and have them test and try them out. Entering his second season with WorldCast Anglers, George Woodward is a versatile guide and angler that demands the same versatility from his gear. Check out his experience with the Waterworks – Lamson Liquid 3 Pack.
“I have always been a big supporter of Boise, Idaho based, Waterworks-Lamson, so I was eager to test out Lamson’s new Liquid reel. Waterworks-Lamson is known for building high-quality durable fly reels with strong and smooth drag systems. The Liquid reel is certainly no exception.
For the past several weeks I have been putting the Liquid through the ringer to prove its performance over the higher priced machined reels in my arsenal. Designed with a large arbor and a 2.5lb max drag, the Liquid is prepared to reel in line quickly and battle large trout. The easy to us drag nob makes on the fly drag adjustments a breeze. The liquid is also astonishingly light and balanced seamlessly with a variety of 5 and 6 weight rods.
Lamson offers a “Liquid 3-pack” that comes with a reel, two extra spools and a carrying case for the price of a reel and one spare spool ($150). The WCA Fly Shop even has a line combo kit for these 3-packs! The 3-pack is ideal for anglers like me who want to carry multiple fly lines and makes switching to a sink tip line when the clouds roll in a simple task. The Lamson Liquid brings the heat with its superior design and performance at the entry-level price point. “
