Islander MR3 Salmon Mooching Reel


The Islander MR3 is the latest entry into the premier salmon mooching reel field. It is result of years of research and development based upon the input of dealers, guides, and pro-staff. Single action reels have long been the choice of most experienced guides and premier lodges on the west cost of British Columbia. Throughout its history, Islander has gained a reputation for longevity and reliability across the fishing community.

Continuing in the Islander tradition of the single action reel, the MR3 utilizes Islanders' impressive silky smooth drag system. Drag is supplied by a large 3-inch clutch, which uses a double pawl system for positive clutch lock up. The drag is adjusted from the spool side, hence the nickname "Knuckle-buster", which happens if the angler is not quick enough moving their hand when the fish makes a run for freedom.

The large sculptured drag knob makes for comfortable use under all conditions. A wide range of drag adjustment allows the angler to choose just the right amount of pressure to subdue even the most ambitious finned adversary. Incorporated into the reel are three large, fully sealed stainless steel ball bearings. The MR3 incorporates a large arbor spool for quicker line pickup; this also eliminates the need for the use of backing as filler. Oversized handles are very user friendly and there also flat, paddle style handles available as an option.

The MR3 is easily converted to either left or right hand retrieve.

Unlike the Islander MR2, there is no free spool lever on the MR3.
