Testimonials

While each destination holds its own secrets and charm, there is one thing that most angling and adventure expeditions have in common: they are logistical nightmares. Often times you are hundreds of miles from outside help, isolated by vast wilderness.  Every ounce of gear must be meticulously planned out, able to withstand the most grueling environmental punishment, without fear of failure.  Resources are limited to only the lightest, toughest, most resilient tools available.  While the remoteness of these exotic locations beckons the fly fishing adventurer, other closer locations remain overlooked for their easy accessibility.  Infield, on the water, there is no room for substitutions. The risk of losing a prized trophy, personal best, or new species caught on the fly is not an option.  Pain is temporary but memories of defeat will haunt you for the rest of your days. Over the last decade, the members of The Fly Fishing Nation Syndicate have scouted, explored, and fished some of the most rugged and remote terrain scattered across our globe while still enjoying our European home waters.  The truly corrosive nature of our field work, in both fresh and saltwater environments, over long periods of time exposes even the smallest of design flaws and material errors. It is not without pride that I can say that we have thrown everything we could at the Finatic Series of reels and they have withstood our abuse, time and time again.  From the far reaches of New Caledonia, through our explorations of the Indian Ocean, to the dirty sewage polluted waters of our back yard, and the hallowed brown trout waters of the southernmost tip of South America we have depended on Hatch reels to deliver. These are exceptionally crafted tools built for the discerning angler.

We have been on the Hatch guide program now since 2012 through our fishing lodge in British Columbia, and we continue to love the quality of all their products and truly value the great service we receive. We have maybe 12 to 15 reels in use now and have hardly had any issues with them despite some great battles with large steelhead and salmon! And everyone who has used the nomad pliers always wants a pair. The speed and efficiency of their customer service is always excellent too. We have several guide deals in place for the BC lodge but truly value the Hatch relationship above all the others. Thank you!

I just wanted to thank you guys for taking care of my damaged reel. Not only did you repair and replace at a very reasonable price, also the turn around time was amazing. Now I know why I bought an great American made product. Now back to fishing.

There are two things in my life that are dependable, reliable, sexy and have never failed me, my wife and my 7Plus!

So the two lines I use the most are the 400 and 500 he and they have probably caught between the two close to a thousand yellowtail, that’s no BS either and about thirty yellow fin and who knows how many bonito…you can come up with some outrageous number and it would be close!!

First off, I would like to thank you so much for your help today. I would like to reiterate that every time I work with your company I am never unsatisfied. I would like for you to run it up the “food chain” that you and your coworkers are wonderful and always eager to help. And in this world, these days, that is hard to find. Your customer service is bar none. I know that everyone is always eager to write with complaints, but me also being in the service industry and business for most of my life (i.e. the Lodge, restaurant business, and retail), it is nice to be able to complement people whom do their jobs perfectly. Being able to promote a product is always tough, but not only does your product deliver, but I can honestly say it is your customer service that makes it so much better.

-Hatch Customer, Steven A.

I wanted to thank you for the great service. In fact, I was so impressed by your can-do attitude and  quick turnaround that I went to my local shop, The Bedford Sportsman, and bought another Hatch reel. Gave them a Nautilus to put on eBay. I’ll be fishing only with Hatch reels from now on.
