Tibor “Ted” Juracsik produced the first Billy Pate Fly Reels in the early 70’s. These reels proved so effective and durable that the Billy Pate reels are still being produced to this day with almost no modifications from the original designs. Tibor has also made several other lines of saltwater and big game reels that are used and cherished by anglers worldwide. Tibor reels are precision made in Delray Beach, Florida with an eye towards simplicity and functionality. Once you own one, it will be no surprise that Tibor reels are responsible for more IFGA records than any other fly fishing reel in history.
