Ross Animas reel on the way…

Orlando FL is gearing up to host the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show this July 16 to 18 – it’s the largest international gathering of fly fishing manufacturers, retailers, sales reps, media and fly fishing organizations in the world.

IFTD is always a great source for new gear announcements and this year is no exception. Many of the major fly rod and reel manufacturers will make at least one new product announcement, with one sizeable cat recently let out of the bag.

An Abel insider has just indicated that the Ross Reel company will release a new trout reel series, tentatively called Animas. The recently released and limited edition G-series, available in three sizes, of which only 500 to 1,000 units have been produced – are already 70% sold out.

A web search turned up no photos of the upcoming Animas series – that’s what IFTD’s for.
