The sport of centerpin fishing is loaded with incredible history and tradition, but rather than simply reproducing a reel design that so many have done before us, we have incorporated our fifty-plus years of fly reel design into the Flow; a reel that has become the new standard for all centerpin reels.

by: John Garrett – Feb, 2013 So, here we are on the verge of a Centerpin explosion in the Pacific Northwest. A lot of folks are intrigued and asking questions. Northwest Fisherman are quickly learning what our Northern neighbors in Canada have known for years! And that’s the efficiency and the effectiveness of using a centerpin rod & reel to catch steelhead. All you have to do is watch someone who is remotely experienced with the technique and you are left in awe. In my conversations with friends and clients, we’ve often mentioned that it should probably be illegal. In my opinion there’s no other technique that’s as deadly effective when it comes to bringing steelhead to hand. I’m sure there are a few side-drifters out there that would beg to differ, but when you put a float on the line…centerpinning is the champion – Hands Down!
