Waterworks Lamson Reels


Product design is the marriage of materials science and engineering with vision, creativity and art. It is the pursuit of product perfection through superior performance, simplicity and grace at The Waterworks-Lamson company.

It was a passion for product design combined with a love for sport that formed our company. The Waterworks-Lamson is unique among fly fishing companies. We are not a machine shop selling reels, we are not a marketing company importing products from overseas. Our focus is exclusively on fly fishing products, our expertise and experience is in product design, and we are committed to the highest standards of domestic manufacturing.

Our products uniquely reflect our drive for superior design. For us this means they must embody true innovation and meaningful improvement. You won't see The Waterworks marketing "just another fly reel" or a "me-too" accessory. If we can't do it better, we won't do it at all.

Making great products also requires a commitment to flawless manufacturing quality. From the Grade 5 titanium, the heat-treated 6020 aluminum alloy and the 544 bearing bronze we use in our reels, to the carbon thermo- composite we mold into the Ketchum Release, each material selection is made without a hint of compromise. The state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and processes we employ result in the highest possible standards of precision, finish and function. And, of course, we extend our commitment to quality by offering personal assistance to our dealers and our customers throughout the lifetime of the product.

We thank you for your interest in our products, and we look forward to being a part of your passion for the sport.

Lamson Speedster S HD - Product Image
Click for larger image

Lamson Speedster S HD

A super-high retrieve rate reel, the Speedster S features a narrower spool, inboard mounted handle, and an outer diameter significantly larger than our highest performing reels. The narrow spool prevents line barreling, while the inboard handle and added circumference improve retrieve rate. Rev these features up with our classic Waterworks-Lamson styling and attention to detail—plus our time-tested, maintenance-free drag system—and you have what the name implies: a hot rod of a reel.

The dimensions of structure and function inspire beauty. An enhanced spool machining technique—focusing material only where it’s needed—is the reason why this version is significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor. *HD spools are not compatible with standard Speedster.

Lamson LITESPEED F, Fly Fishing Reel - Product Image

Lamson LITESPEED F, Fly Fishing Reel

Light-year. The distance traveled by light in a single year; the time it takes for design to evolve to a next step. What can be said about larger but lighter, lighter but stronger? Of course it can be done. We've done it over and over again, but does there come a time when the bar can't be raised? No, there are always improvements to be made, new ways of thinking, new materials, and processes to exploit. As we've said - the performance benchmark for a fly reel is retrieve rate per ounce. If you haven't thought about it before, think about it now: there's no downside to high retrieve rate other than extra weight. As an example, consider the 2021 Gen 6 Litespeed: CNC machined with material distributed artfully along critical load paths, stable and strong, so light you might forget it's there, but beautiful enough to make you remember it is. The art of the fly reel derives from the science of the fly reel, but at the end of the day both art and science, when held in balance, serve to make us smile.

LSF - The LSF is the freshwater version of the new Litespeed. The chassis is based on the conical system found in our other reels with the addition of a click stop drag knob and a unique spring set that creates a linear progression of torque with very fine resolution at the light end of its range. LSF spool and frame architecture is super-arbor in scale for high retrieve, but spare and open to promote line drying and, of course, reduce weight.

Waterworks Force SL Series II - Product Image
Click for larger image

Waterworks Force SL Series II

Reel se the force. Even lighter than the original, the Force SL Series II breaks its own record as the lightest machined reel on the market. This evolution in the Force Superlight reel lineage includes an even larger arbor to increase line retrieval and decrease weight. Plus it has an enhanced CNC machined structural development and more fluid, refined styling. Since coming onto the scene in 1997, the Force reels have pursued what we feel is the Holy Grail of fly reel performance: delivering the highest possible ratio of retrieve rate to reel weight. To this end, while other super arbor reels add weight in order to gain speed, Force reels maintain their featherweight specification by being pure muscle and bone.

Lamson Liquid Fly Fishing Reel

Liquid courage. Let's face it, die-cast reels are intended to be low-cost alternatives to machined reels, right? Imported. Heavier. Easier to damage. Plain Jane. Well . . . not anymore. When creating Liquid, we focused purely on the virtues and advantages a pressure-cast process can offer. Structurally, you can do things with casting that you can't machine: Full-radiused compound curves. Near zero-radius inside corners. And for a precision fit and finish, we even go back and machine the cast part in critical areas--amplifying the best aspects of both worlds. We pushed back on other boundaries as well. How much of a reel at this cost can we make here in the US.? Quite a lot, as it turns out. It's a good mix, too. Liquid's high-quality castings are imported, but the components critical to the drag system are CNC-machined in the US. Liquid reels are assembled in Boise alongside our highest-priced reels. No other $100 reel can boast this much US content and quality oversight. New finish: Liquid Vapor. Also available in Smoke.

Lamson Remix HD Fly Fishing Reel

Change agent. A heavy-duty version of the Remix, this HD reel has a full-cage design to capture line without failure. This makes a great option for an entry-level switch, Spey, boat or all-around, ready-for-anything reel. A sexy fusion between the free-form structures of a cast spool and the mechanical integrity of a CNC-machined case, Remix is the ultimate hybrid. Machined in Idaho from bar-stock aluminum, the case delivers maximum structural rigidity and durability all wrapped in a harder, brighter finish. The spool (compatible with Liquid), is pressure-cast with radiused compound curves, near zero-radius inside corners, and a precise fit and finish. It has a U-shape arbor and narrow format to aid in line control. Remix crossbreeds the best of CNC-machining and pressure-cast technologies to deliver an unprecedented level of quality for a bit more than $150. In addition to the US-made case, all critical drag components are expertly CNC-machined in the US.

Waterworks Lamson GURU S HD

GURU S HD

 

Reach nirvana. The HD in this reel stands for "Heavy Duty." The Guru S HD has both a complete cage design and type II in blaze finish. Guru S HD is a phenomenal, affordable Saltwater and/or Spey reel. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a mind-blowing price. We've updated Guru's spool geometry for enhanced retrieve rates, opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, integrated the counterbalance, and introduced a curved cross section arbor for structural stability. Guru continues to prove that the quest for enlightenment can be anything but boring.

Available in Blaze.

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2customer ratings

Totally enlightened. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a great price. By increasing the arbor to a larger diameter and making the spool narrower--all the while decreasing its total weight and parts--Guru S takes it to another level. An enhanced spool machining technique--focusing material only where it's needed--makes this version significantly lighter and higher performing than its predecessor. We've opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, and integrated the counterbalance. We even introduced a curved cross-section for structural stability. Taking your game to fishing nirvana, this will be your Guru for life.
