LH Design Titanium Reels

Leen Huisman on the L.H.Design Programme
The L.H. Design programme is based on two principles. On the one hand there is the firm belief that "a thing of beauty is a joy forever", and L.H. Design fly rods and fly reels are trying to prove that saying true. On the other hand it goes without saying that the functional aspects of the design should certainly not be forgotten. Every craftsman knows that perfection is always one step away, yet the L.H. Design program is certainly striving for perfection. Now, and in the future, L.H. Design will be a guarantee for balanced design and craftsmanship.
LH Design Titanium Fly Reels.
Leen produces hand made titanium fly reels that are the ultimate marriage of craftsmanship, art and technical expertise. Each reel is entirely handmade and Leen takes his craft seriously and will not allow anything less than perfection to leave his workshop. Leen is able to accommodate most custom order requests and various engraving options are also available to order. The standard range covers every fly fishing situation from light trout to salmon, pike, sea trout or saltwater and Leen is always working on new variations and models.
Commitment to maintaining the highest quality means there will normally be a significant waiting time for one of these reels. However, Leen sometimes has reels available for immediate delivery Please see the AVAILABLE NOW section below for details. New reels are always in development and you can find details of reels which are being added to the range in the NEW section . For more details of Leen's full reel range and order details, please visit the ORDER section. Leen also makes beautiful rods, visit the L.H.DESIGN RODS page to discover more.

Leen has started production of his Amber Lightweight Series 4/5 Titanium and PEI reels which weigh just 110 grams. The reels have a non adjustable clicker overrun protection and come with a choice of spool; a standard spool or one with a palming rim. Reels come in a black fleece lined pouch and spare spools have an amber coloured pouch, which matches the colour of the PEI material perfectly.

Amber Trout and Salmon reels
These reels were developed in partnership with Alex Kaplun of Megoff Fly Reels. The Amber Trout reel is a traditionally designed “clicker” only fly reel, with a classic serpentine handle and enclosed spool frame. Made of Titanium with translucent amber, extremely stable PEI plastic side plates, it has ample capacity for 5/6 weight fly lines & backing. The Amber Salmon is a classically designed,10-12wt modern, high tech. Salmon reel with a superbly smooth, functional & effective drag system.

Please contact me for latest pricing.

Superb trout reels with a full drag system. Leen's innovative design & use of materials is unique & the quality of manufacture and aesthetic appeal is unmatched.
Leen says these maybe the best reels he has ever made and I think he may be right. They are my favourite Trout reel....
The ARROWHEAD comes in 4 Wt. and 5 Wt. versions, with caged 3 pillar frames and a 7/8 version with a 5 pillar caged frame. Reels are available with PEI &/or Titanium spools

Please contact me for specification and latest pricing.
Minimalist, hubless, beautiful design. Perfectly engineered and faultlessly executed.
Available in 4-5 and 7wt. models. Both frame and the spool from are made from solid blocks of Ti. using the “Monoblock” construction method. (Reel shown with celtic knot engraving, available at extra cost.)
"A new challenge for both L.H.Design and Megoff was the design of a hubless reel.The heart of reels of this type is the bearing. The bearing we found for the Highland reel gives a perfectly balanced “starting inertia” and combined with the ability to “hand palming” the spool rim, provides all the drag control that is needed."
