The reviews are remarkably consistent: if you don't mind spending a little more for good design and great craftsmanship, you will love fishing with a Hatch reel. Day after day, river after river, fish after fish. The Hatch Finatic delivers.
All Hatch Finatics are machined out of a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum; the drag is totally enclosed, operates very smoothly and automatically self lubricates – you'll never need to open it up - ever. Hatch’s Andrew Dickinson said “The Rulon disk system of any Finatic Plus reel has several square inches of surface area – a really large surface area which increases reliability and durability.” When asked about the warranty, Andrew said “We try to keep it simple. We warranty the parts and functionality for the original owner. If you drop it out the car window going 100 MPH on the freeway and it breaks, that’s your fault. If the parts don’t function or work, that’s our fault and we’ll fix it.”
Finatic Plus reels are protected from the elements by Type 2 anodizing. The reels come in large and mid arbor sizes and a variety of colors: Clear/Blue, Clear/Green, Clear/Red, Clear/Black and Black/Silver.

We’re talking small. You might even use one of these as a key chain. Hatch had never considered a reel of this size since they very rarely fish with 0 to 2 weight rods. However, their minds changed when they had so many requests. So for all you creeky anglers who love the little stuff this reel is for you.

If you’re looking for the perfect trout reel than you just found it. The 3 Plus is capable of running 3 through 5 weight lines with ample backing capacity for the occasional whopper that might come along. At first glance you’ll notice this ain't no dainty trout reel. This little wonder means business.

The 4 Plus bridges the gap in size and weight between the 3 and 5 plus models. The reel was designed to be the perfect 5-weight reel, but feels equally balanced with both 4 and 6 weight lines as well.

Hatch calls this bad boy the “do it all” reel. We’ve used this reel surf fishing on the coast, steelheading in the West, throwing big honking streamers to ravenous browns in Montana, and stalking bones on the flats in Belize. Designed for running 5 through 7 line weights.

If I was stranded on a desert island and had only one reel to bring it would be the 7 Plus. We have sold more of these bad boys than any other size in the Hatch line up. Why? Because it’s the perfect crossover reel for both salt and fresh water fly fishing. From Bonefish to Permit, Steelhead to Carp this reel has you covered.

Capable of running 9 through 12 weight lines, and your choice of mid or large arbor spools, this reel is one versatile hombre. If you are truly serious about saltwater or spey fishing than this is your next reel.
8. Hatch Finatic 11 Plus Fly Reel Get 8,250 Angler Rewards Points with this Purchase! Learn More
When Hatch designed this reel they had one thing in mind. Tarpon. The goal was to create a larger reel that bridged the gap between the 9 plus and 12 plus models. They also wanted to make sure it had an oversized handle for greater grip control when fighting those big silver critters. The mid arbor option is also great for spey rods from 13.5' to 14.5'.

Conventional wisdom says: Never take a knife to a gunfight. And when you’re tackling big critters like the ones this reel was designed for, then I think that’s really sound advice. The 12 Plus was designed for fish that are notorious for being really hard to handle. GT’s or Tuna, just to name a few, can undo your average gear in a fraction of a second. You will not find a better fish-fighting tool on the market for these situations.
