Penn Reels

Penn Fishing Reels


“PENN – Let the battle begin”, an appropriate motto for a respected and inspirational company in the fishing reel industry that has made its indelible mark over 85 years of dedicated service bringing many accolades to all those who have placed their trust our products.


From very humble beginnings the PENN Fishing Tackle Manufacturing Company founded by Otto Henze and after his sudden demise in 1948 his wife Martha’s inspirational leadership, has made the name “PENN” synonymous with high quality fishing reels, setting world records in every class.


Over 1,400 International Game Fish Association (IGFA) records is not a flash in the pan but counts years of Research and Development (R&D) coupled with innovative designs and dedicated perseverance to the cause of tackling the most elusive fish in any body of water.


This impressive basket full or IGFA records have come the PENN way due to the commitment that our company has made to ensure that every rod and reel that leaves our manufacturing facilities meet our stringent standards even above those impressed upon by the specific regulating authorities.


PENN reels are in a class of their own and we continuously work towards bringing all those discerning anglers from around the world nothing but the best and we make no compromises whatsoever on design and quality, workmanship and performance on the waters wherever that may be.


Be it the high seas or the calm waters of the inland waterways, fishing is an art which only a few could master and to meet the arduous challenges coming any angler’s way the tools of his trade should be perfect to precision if the desired results are to be envisaged.


PENN delivers just that and more with more fishing reels in production at any given time than any other manufacturer anywhere in the world and has been in the forefront of game fishing since the inception of the company in 1932.


A fishing reel for any type of fish is what PENN offers and it was proved beyond an iota of doubt when the legendary fishing enthusiast Frank Mundas, the inspirational personality for the Robert Shaw film “Jaws” tackled a Mako Shark weighing in at 1080 pounds, with a PENN rod and reel.

This is the largest catch ever on rod and reel and for it to be on a PENN combination was a foregone conclusion as only one of ours could have achieved that remarkable never to be repeated feat.


PENN reels have made their presence known the world over and if you are looking for nothing but the best then it is a performance proven PENN that should be accompanying you in all your fishing trips to any nook or corner of the world.


To this day, this reputation is implemented for all equipment produced by PENN. Fishing is the most popular sport in the world and can be a fun and relaxing adventure.

In order to get full experience, the right fishing tackle should be used. Fishing gear is basically all the accessories that one uses when fishing. Fishing equipment stretches from fishing rod, fishing reels, hunting knives, fishing pliers etc.

These tools are so necessary that without having the perfect tools when fishing, it will be very difficult for a great catch. In this article we will discuss two of the most important fishing tools that every hunter cannot do without.

If you are looking for fishing reels and fishing rods, then you need to buy quality and the right equipments. Buying the wrong fishing reels or fishing rods can be a costly mistake, so you'll want to get it right the first time. The fact that a friend or magazine recommends, does not mean that it is right for you. When deciding on fishing reels, you should consider the following important factors:

• The size of the fish you chase. After all, it is the size of the catch that decides the proper fishing gear you need. Once you are able to determine the relative size of your target, it becomes easier for you to choose the right reels and rods for the catch.

• Choosing a rod or reel also depends on whether you are fishing from a party boat or you are fishing on the beach, a shore or sitting on a dock. Both of these applications require a different kind of fishing reel.

Then comes durability: You do not want the reel to corrode eventually, and you want it to continue functioning even if it dropped, stepped on or whatever. Regarding corrosion resistance. If the roller is not well coated or the surfaces are not somehow treated to reduce corrosion, it can corrode, even if used in fresh water; and much less in saltwater. As the pizza man says. "Best ingredients, best pizza."

Talking of the best ingredients, one thing is certain. Every single model of Penn reels and rods shares the same principle- they are all made to last for a lifetime of fishing.

It is almost impossible to find another reel that so resistant to saltwater or another reel that is meant to last for so long as Penn reel. According to consumers and critics, "Penn has the best fishing reels in the market."

Whatever nature has to throw on them, Penn Reel can handle it.
