Waterworks Lamson Guru Series II Fly Reel - All Varieties
SKU 949-GuruIIReel-P

Guru continues to prove that the quest for “enlightenment” can be anything but boring.

Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard as a rugged, fully USA-machined ultra-reliable reel at a great price. This season Waterworks-Lamson has 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.

Black Guru II is virtually the same reel as the Guru II, finished in a smooth black Type II anodize.

Features Include:
  • Format: Large Arbor
  • Materials: Machined 6061 Aluminum, stainless steel
  • Finish: Type II Anodize
  • Drag: Sealed Conical Drag System
  • US Made, Idaho Built

    Solid Choice!

    I bought this reel a few months back, and I LOVE it! I upgraded from an entry-level plastic reel, and boy did this feel like nice after that. I've fished this with my 5wt reel in lots of different conditions, and it's never let me down. It's lightweight enough that my arm doesn't get too tired holding and casting it all day. The construction seems really solid to me, and I have had 0 issues with it getting mucked up with sand/grit/etc. A quick dunk in the river will take care of any of that. From what I've heard, it's recommended that you give it a little dunk to get rid of any sand or dirt after each use.

    The one comment I do have is that when you're putting your fly line on it, be mindful of the amount of backing you use. I think I used a bit too much, and its a touch difficult to reel fully up when storing. It's not a huge problem because it doesn't happen when you're fishing, only when you're getting all your fly line on the spool for storage. The excess of fly line gets to be too tall to wind around properly. My boyfriend has the same reel and he's never had this problem so I think that's my fault. I just figured it was worth noting.

    It's got a pretty sleek, sexy design too! Overall I'd definitely recommend this reel. It seems like it's a really great value for what you're getting... It's a HUGE upgrade from the beginner reel I started with, and it didn't totally break the bank. I picture myself using this for years to come.

    The Lamson Guru 2 II is a beautifully built large arbor reel rated at 5 / 6. Fully machined with a sealed drag, this reel will stand up to years of use. I've paired it to a Walton 6 / 7 and it looks and feels like a solid combo pack.
