Mark IV 4.25" Salmon Reel
Model size is listed by the outside
diameter of the reel. Spool width
describes the inside width of the
spool. Reel weight is given in
ounces without line installed. Our
two trout models feature a preset
Gear & Pawl drag system for spool
control while paying out line to a
running fish. The drag is designed
to control the over-run of the spool
with just a light drag to protect light
tippets. Reels are precision
machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum
Alloy, 300 Series Stainless Steel
and Silicone Bronze. Trout models
cannot be retrieve converted, and
must be ordered according to
individual needs LHW or RHW.
Conversion service is free from the
factory if required.
The first reelmaker I contacted when I tried to get this business going in mid-1992 was Joe Saracione. I was
already a proud owner of a bunch of his reels and thought the world of all of them. Quite honestly, I thought that
if I wasn't able to land Saracione I probably didn't have a viable business idea in mind. I have been a Saracione
dealer ever since, except for a brief period when Joe retired from reelmaking. During 2010, Joe decided to
reintroduce his Deluxe II reels as he really missed doing the bench-made type of reel. Just Reels is one of just
a handful of Saracione dealers that has access to the Deluxe II. Like the original Deluxe II models, these have
gorgeous Ebonite hard rubber sideplates that appear to be rich wet black paint.                                                   

The rims are 18% German nickel/silver and the counterbalance and other trim on them is 12% German
nickel/silver. The Trout models have a non-adjustable gear and pawl system while the Salmon models have
Joe's famous cork disc drag featuring a nine position detent lever on the backplate. I've fished reels that have
the multi-shoe drum drag and find the disc drag smoother and the reels themselves quite a bit lighter. I also find
that the drags don't ramp up as quickly as most drum drags do. All of Joe's Salmon models are single action. I'm
trying to keep a few of the trout models in stock. Of course, as a Saracione dealer I can also set you up with
Joe's CNC Mark IV reels which also come in Trout, Salmon Gear and Pawl, and Salmon Disc Drag models. I
will not be keeping these in stock, but can usually get whatever you need within a week or so. I'd much prefer
to use the resources available to keep a few of the Deluxe II models on the shelf. All orders of Deluxe II models
require a 20% deposit and a quoted waiting time of 60-90 days. My experiences thus far have been that the
wait will likely be longer than that, but not the year plus that it could end up taking twenty years ago.
In August, 2012, Joe announced a new high-end saltwater reel called the Islamorada. In three sizes to match up
with the very popular bonefish, permit, and tarpon, each would of course serve many other purposes including
some in freshwater. The drag is actuated by a lever and has strong detents in each position. The drag itself
features three carbon fibre discs bearing against heavily anodized aluminum washers. It has a very strong
maximum drag and is designed and lubricated with the intent that it will eventually get wet. Even though it's an
open drag design, this should eliminate any hydroplaning. The bearings used are massive compared to those
used in most fly reels. That's one of the reasons for the slightly higher weights than many of the other new reels
on the market. These reels are intended to be serious gear that will stand up to the rigors that saltwater fishing
often provides. They are available in black, gold, silver, or any combination (frame/spool) of those colors. I will,
for now, be stocking them in all black. After the initial startup these should be available with virtually no wait. That
would mean ordering different colors should add only a few days to the process. All parts are made by Saracione
Mfg. in their shop in Oregon. Nothing is made overseas. Joe even does his own anodizing. Call or e-mail me for
more information on them.
Single action direct drive. Materials
used: Precision machined 6061-T6
aluminum for frames, spools, side
plates, and reel foot. Screws and
reel spindle are stainless steel.
Bushings and bearings are made
from silicone-aluminum bronze.
The trout models cannot be
converted from right to left hand
retrieve, and must be ordered
according to individual needs. The
salmon models can be easily
converted from right to left hand
retrieve and have a super smooth
disc drag made up of Rulon
impregnated cork. Spools can be
quickly changed on all salmon
models. Each reel is individually
numbered and carries a lifetime
warranty for the original purchaser.
A warranty card is provided with
each reel and simply needs to be
filled out and mailed to Saracione
Manufacturing.
Our salmon and steelhead models feature a multi- disc drag system with a 10 position drag knob located on the
back side plate of the reel. Additionally, each Disc Drag reel model features a preset Gear & Pawl drag system
also; designed to control spool overrun when lighter disc drag settings are made. This is not just a “clicker” it is a
spool controlling drag system. All salmon and steelhead disc drag models can be easily converted for LHW or
RHW reeling. Spare spools are available and can be quickly changed. All Mark IV reels are designed for
freshwater use only. They are very “Sport specific in design” and are designed specifically for salmon and
steelhead fly fishing with long two handed rods.
When talking about handmade fly reels Saracione can easily be called “The Best” by many fly fishing
enthusiasts.  The quality and craftsmanship is evident in every reel, right down to each individual handmade
screw.  These reels are made in Sandy, OR so you get that made in the USA superiority.  Each reel is individually
numbered and carries a lifetime warranty for the life of the original purchaser.  We are honored to carry these fine
reels and would love to make them a part of your fly fishing arsenal.

Model 3 ¾”: Spool Width: 1 5/32.” Weight: 14.4 ounces. Fly line: 6,7,8 Capacity: 125+yds. Application: The 3 ¾”
Mark IV disc drag is our most popular salmon and steelhead reel period! Anglers from all over the world have
shown us that this is their reel of choice. We have trouble keeping this reel model in stock. The spool capacity
accommodates some of the most popular line weights, and the reel balances well on the latest 12ft to 13 1/2ft
rods.

Model 4 1/4":  The 4 1/4" is designed
specifically to balance two‐handed
rods 14ft‐16ft in length, for 8/9/10
weight lines; at 16.6 ounces it does
the job perfectly. This is the first model
Mark IV reel Joe Saracione designed
and built when he created the Mark IV
series in 2007. Joe enjoys fishing 14
1/2ft to 16 ft rods for winter steelhead
and this reel he designed specifically
for that purpose. The spool capacity
accommodates 225+yards of 30lb
backing with the above specified lines.
The drag system is designed for long
rod salmon and steelhead fly fishing‐
not Tarpon fishing or any other sport.
Rod length creates line drag as the
rod bends to a fish; the longer the rod
the more drag is naturally created.
The addition of a gear & pawl
overrunning check along with the disc
drag allows the Mark IV reels to be
fished with very light drag settings to
compliment their matching long rods
(off the disc) and still control the spool
RPM. The "Clicker" in the Mark IV is a
drag system in itself not just an
audible click as on all other disc drag
reels, it is a "Gear & Pawl Drag". This
is a big rod, big line, big fish reel,
designed for 2‐handed rods.
