1 Plus – The smallest reel in the Hatch lineup. This reel is designed for the smallest mountain streams and spring creeks where bringing a 3 weight feels like overkill. Just enough drag, but drastically reduced weight to balance ultralight rods.
3 Plus – Hatch’s quintessential trout reel. The 3 plus was designed for 3-5 weight lines, but still has the awesome Hatch feel we’ve grown to love. Want to do some ultralight saltwater fishing? Choose the mid-arbor spool for a little extra backing
4 Plus – We think of this as Hatch’s “big trout reel”. It’s got enough room for a 200 grain sink tip for chucking streamers to big browns, but also balances a 10′ 4-weight nymphing rod really well.
5 Plus – Do it all with the 5 Plus. Bonefish in Belize, summer stealhead, small stripers and baby tarpon – this is the reel for you. Lot’s of buttery smooth drag to bring bringing a 3 weight feels like overkill. Just enough drag, but drastically reduced weight to balance ultralight rods.
7 Plus – The ultimate in versatility, the 7 Plus is the ideal pairing for any 8-weight rod. With a large arbor spool it’s ideal for everything from snook to redfish to bones. Add a mid-arbor spool and you’ve got a great 9-weight reel for permit and stripers. Add Gel Spun and you’ve got enough backing for smaller tarpon.
9 Plus – Going tarpon fishing in the keys? Spey casting for Atlantic salmon on the Miramichi? The 9 Plus is your reel. It’s massive drag will slow even the biggest quarry.
11 Plus – Big Tarpon. This is your reel. Enough said.
12 Plus – This reel was designed to take fly fishing to places where we don’t necessarily think about fly fishing. I’m talking about true bluewater situations: Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna
