If you’ve been reading Gink and Gasoline for a while, you may have figured out that I love Nautilus reels. Owner, Kristen Mustad has become a good friend and in an industry full of really smart people, Kristen is one of the smartest. His designs are works of art.

Winner of best fly reel in both Saltwater and Freshwater categories at IFTD, the new Silver King fly reel from Nautilus is a serious piece of fish fighting machinery. The five inch spool delivers 14 1/2 inches per turn of line pickup and it’s the lightest reel in its class, ever. The new dual carbon fiber sealed drag is phenomenal! Super stout with the finest adjustment I’ve ever seen in a fly reel.

The Silver King, available Jan 30th, is loaded with features but there is an elegance to its design and proportions that is hard to explain. The feel of this reel in your hand has to be experienced. It feels like it was Taylor made for the hand. It’s a thing of beauty.

In this video Kristen introduces you to the Silver King and just for fun we look at some of the amazing Nautilus custom finishes, including one Kristen calls, “Your Mother’s Thong.” Only from Nautilus.

    Having been advised to lay my hands on a Nautilus G9, should I now be thinking about the Nautilus Silver King for my next Bone fishing trip.
