More than a decade ago, Cheeky Fishing® decided on another way to make fly fishing reels. They were sick of seeing overpriced and uninspired gear, so they focused on fun and lowering the barriers for all people to fall in love with fly fishing. Cheeky brought vibrant color, sleek design, and the smoothest drag on the planet to fly reels, and didn’t stop there… Cheeky is now a leader in durable, high-performance fly fishing products that provide smart, wallet-friendly solutions for all anglers.

The company also started the Cheeky Schoolie Tournament — a conservation-based fly fishing tournament held annually on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Now more than a decade old, it is the largest fly fishing tournament on the planet. This catch-photo-and-release tournament has become a force in striped bass conservation with all the proceeds going to its conservation partners.
