Tibor Billy Pate Bonefish Fly Reel
The Tibor fly reels were first introduced in 1995 and they have
established themselves as the benchmark for custom-crafted fly
reels. After years of development and input from the likes of Lefty
Kreh and Flip Pallot, Ted was finally satisfied with a reel that truly
has set a new standard in fly fishing reel technology. The spool's
large arbor design significantly enhances the rate of line retrieval
which is critical when you're trying to control speedsters like
bonefish, bonito, or wahoo. As with all of Ted's reels, the drag system
is absolutely flawless and has withstood the test of the world's most
demanding game fish, including 250 World Records, so far. If you
were to own only one fly reel, the Tibor Fly Reel is the one.

Product Details

Superdurable reels designed to tackle the biggest saltwater fish
Built with an ultrasmooth and powerful cork drag
Deeply anodized for superior corrosion resistance


Built tough to withstand the harsh conditions of the ocean and the
ruthless runs of the fish that live there, these are among the finest
saltwater fly reels ever made. Come with Tibor's waterproof,
silky-smooth micro-grain cork disc-drag that has exceptional stopping
power and is self-lubricating. The drag system constantly applies
seal pressure while in free spool so the reel will never over-run itself
when you strip line. Changing spools is lightning fast with the
QuickChange spool system that has only one moving part. Unique
mechanical clutch system allows easy change from right- to left-hand
retrieve. Frame and spool are made from anodized machined
aluminum. Beefy Gorilla handle helps you battle big saltwater
gamefish. Extra-thick neoprene reel case included. Each reel
features a personalized nameplate, engraved free by Tibor. USA.
More world records have been set using Tibor reels than any other
fly reel. Leverage this fish-taming potential to your benefit with the
Signature series, Tibor’s finest reels to date. The efficient design
consists of very few parts. A ventilated spool and frame keeps
weight to a minimum, while maintaining structural integrity.
QuickChange™ spool system involves a single moving part for
unmatched reliability. The waterproof sealed drag system is among
the smoothest and strongest in the industry. The drag constantly
applies seal pressure while in free spool, eliminating overrun while
stripping line. Lubricated micrograin cork delivers legendary silky
smooth performance. Mechanical clutch system allows easy
conversion from left- to right-hand retrieve. Each reel is individually
serialized for identification and signed by master reel designer Ted
"Tibor" Juracsik. Includes thick neoprene case for protection during
storage and transport. Manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty. Made
in USA.
2011 marked the 35th Anniversary of Tibor Reel Corporation. To
celebrate, we introduced the Tibor Signature Series, a revolutionary
new line of reels that are the pinnacle of 35 years of designing and
manufacturing the world's finest fly fishing reels. The newest reel,
the Tibor Signature Series 5-6, now completes this series. Internal
innovations such as a light-weight aluminum sealed drag system,
and other component modifications make this reel light enough for
freshwater tackle, yet strong enough to withstand tough tarpon runs
and brutal saltwater conditions. This is truly the little reel that can!
1976 was a hallmark year for the fly fishing world. It was then that
Ted Juracsik introduced his first Anti-Reverse Tarpon Reel
designated the Billy Pate.

This series now includes three Anti-Reverse models, for rod weights
6-12. No other reel has matched the Billy Pate's durability and
dependability day in day out, year after year, regardless of
conditions, locale or species. This precision piece of equipment is
designed and constructed to withstand the most demanding fly
fishing environments. As with all reels that leave Ted's shop, the
Billy Pate is virtually maintenance free.

While there are over 225 World Records that attest to its
performance, you don't have to be interested in records to
appreciate this reel. If you know your fly fishing history, you know
this is the reel that set the hook.
