Review – Ross Cimarron II Reel – ‘Merica

Custom tent rod holders

The Ross Reel attached to a Thomas & Thomas is like having two hot girlfriends that love each other. And they both live for fishing. I purchased the Animas 5 Wt. at M.W. Reynolds in downtown Denver on sale, and it is wonderful. When paired with the right 5-6 weight rod, it is like holding the Elderwand in your hand. The line sails off the reel like a feather in a cool summer breeze. All the components easily remove for cleaning and oiling and admiring. Plus, it’s made right here in Colorado, USA! ‘Merica!

And when you do hook into a 24″ trout torpedo, this is the reel I love having in my corner for the fight. Smooth and forgiving when the beast makes a hard run through swirling currents, and steadily strong when using that last bit of muscle to land it in the net.

I’m rough on equipment but careful enough not to be a complete jackass, and this reel holds up day after day. Buy it. You will not regret it.

I grew up in the middle of nowhere Texas. The nearest Walmart was a full two hours away. My family still runs a ranch back home that I grew up on, but at some point in my treasured youth I hung up the idea of becoming a cowboy, and pursued my passion for architecture. Today I still find myself trying to fit in to a life that has treated me with the average ups and downs one can expect after a certain number of years. My wife and I moved to Denver after attending Texas Tech School of Architecture in Lubbock as we needed a grade change from the Llano Estacado. We camp with our three growing girls all summer and into the fall while I write and create and fly fish to maintain sanity. Life is moving fast as our careers and children progress in all areas, so being outdoors with each other keeps us mostly grounded.
