The Canada Drifter
A Classic reel with adjustable friction drag or clicker drag
The Canada Drifter has a combination of classic and distinctive styling. The reel is pictured here in the adjustable drag version with optional custom handles and optional badge in the center of the drag adjustment knob. The drag system has both a winding clicker and an audible drag. (The audible drag clicker can be omitted upon request.)
This reel can also be ordered for persons who prefer right hand wind. The drag engagement lever location remains the same as the left wind reel but the pawls in the drag mechanism are reversed so that they engage correctly for right wind operation. The reel can be converted back to left wind in our shop if desired.
The friction drag version comes with an adjustment knob in the center of the spool face however a flush spool cap set-and-forget drag adjust is available.
The clicker drag version has a flush spool cap with two screws.
