Douglas Outdoors Nexus


Light, Strong, Affordable, ‘Nuff said.


Sealed disc drag reels have definitely earned their place. Anglers are moving into unknown waters that are colder and grittier than before finding fish that fly anglers of the past never even considered chasing.

Fly fishing is an adventure sport and you need a reel fit to take the abuse. The Nexus is a light frame reel designed to maximize drag efficiency and minimize the torque you feel. It’s an extremely light, durable, hardworking reel. From trout to bonefish to king salmon and everything in between, the Nexus series has a feel for you.
