Almost nothing beats the hero shot after a long fought battle with a monster tarpon. Hell, you’ve earned it … stalking those behemoths is a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. Cobia, roosterfish? It doesn’t get any easier, unless of course you’re fishing with a reel specifically designed for big game inshore fly fishing like the Thrash 475.
The Thrash 475’s fully sealed Evo Synthetic disc drag system has the stopping power to reign in the fiercest permit, and its quick-change spool is perfect when you need to switch from 10 wt. sinking line to 12 wt. floating line.
