Galvan Brookie Fly Reel

Galvan Fly Reels, Inc.


We have always been fans of simple, elegant products that work. The Galvan Brookie is everything you need in a smaller freshwater reel with none of the things you don’t. Very lightweight with a smooth “drag” and a large arbor for fast pickup and low line memory. Made of machined anodized aluminum for a lifetime and more of use.

The “click ball” drag mechanism, similar in function to the click-pawl mechanism used by other manufacturers, is a departure from anything seen in the past. Adjustments are made with a standard size allen wrench. As with the click-pawl system, drag is the same incoming and outgoing.

At your request, we will rig this reel with Dacron backing free of charge. If you are purchasing a line and would like us to install both line and backing, let us know and we will have it fully rigged and ready to go. Add a note to your order on the shopping cart page to provide the following information:
  1. Would you like the reel set up for left or right hand retrieve?
  2. What color backing would you prefer? The free options are White, Fluorescent Yellow and Orange.
  3. If you are purchasing a line, would you like us to install it on the reel? If so, we will install the appropriate amount of backing for that line. If we will be installing backing without a line, we will go by the manufacturer’s specifications for the smallest line recommended for that reel. If you would prefer something different, please let us know.
For details on how we rig see the "Rigging" section of our FAQ page.
