Curly Maple Handreels for Backpack Fishing

A broad-leafed tree that provides ample shade in summer, brilliant fireworks of color in fall, slow-burning heat in winter, and sweet syrup in the spring, the maple tree is a true treasure of the forest. Named for the distinctive swirl patterns in its grain, Curly Maple ranges in color from nearly pure white to gold, sometimes with streaks of darker reddish brown. 

As part of the Kairos Release, a limited release of 20 Curly Maple Handreels are available, each individually numbered and engraved. 

Each kit comes with 30 yards of 6-lb copolymer fishing line, a lead-free tackle kit, and a wooden hand reel with 3.8 cubic inches of built-in storage space.

Find peace in the remote wilderness, experience the thrill of going one-on-one with your catch, and feel the satisfaction of a meal pulled straight from a mountain stream.

A Complete Portable Fishing Kit

Combining a rod, reel, and tackle box all in one, each handreel comes with 30 yards of 6-lb fishing line and a lead-free tackle kit, including hooks, sinkers, rubber grubs, and a float from Trout Magnet. With everything you need included, you can take your Daggerfish straight from the box to the wilderness and be fishing in no time.

Extra Storage for Advanced Techniques

Hand line fishing is a simple way to fish, with plenty of room for more advanced techniques. Storage areas in the reel and handle give you the space to pack additional tackle and other essentials, so you can carry topwater lures for spin fishing or subsurface flies for fly fishing.  

Ultra Light and Adventure Ready  

Weighing less than 5 oz and under 10 inches in length, the Daggerfish is the perfect backpacking fishing kit for thru-hikers and explorers. It also meets TSA requirements for carry-on bags, so whether you’re tossing it into your day pack, bike bag, kayak, or glovebox, the Daggerfish is the travel fishing rod that can go with you, no matter where you’re going.

Handcrafted in the USA, and Guaranteed For a Lifetime  

Every handreel we make is made by hand from domestic hardwood. A single craftsman cuts, turns, finishes, and ships your handreel to you, and every order bears their signature of approval. All products are backed by our For a Lifetime Guarantee: if anything goes wrong, we'll fix it or replace it.

Every One Unique

Our product photos represent the "average" characteristics of the wood and finishing techniques we use for each piece. Your handreel will have its own distinct grain pattern and character, making it completely unique to you.

Easy to use, ultra lightweight and extremely portable, Daggerfish Handreels are the finest way for both newcomers and experienced anglers alike to go fish deep in the backcountry.
