Surf fishing is for the discriminating, eagle-eyed angler. Those passionate about surf fishing know the sand bar and its outflows, eye the shells that lead to the deeper holes, and keep a keen eye out for feeding birds and a sharp weather eye. Those who prefer their feet on land are playing an observer’s game, and the knowledge required to play comes from experience. It’s the quickest route to becoming a seasoned surf angler. But there’s no doubt it’s worth the time — who has more fun than a surf fisherman when the blues are boiling?


Those piling their surf fishing gear into the vehicle and heading to the beaches to surf fish know their priorities. Saltwater casting from the beach requires gear that’s versatile, durable, and precision-designed for long, effortless casts. PENN® Surf Fishing Reels are made with a singular focus on cast distance that has won over surf casters for decades. Our line of Surf Reels delivers superior casting reels that provide the necessary confidence when en route to the beach. 


Balance and versatility are fundamental to the PENN® Spinfisher line. Precise machining allows casting over extremely long distances, and PENN® has a range of long casting reels up for the job. Surfblaster III Long Cast is the latest take on one of the most popular and reliable shore fishing reels to ever enter the market. This is the choice used by both novice and pro beach and surf anglers across the UK and Europe. These are well suited when targeting Bass, Rays and Plaice where a longer cast is often needed. The Spinfisher® VI Long Cast Spinning Reel comes with four presets for rear drag adjustment that deliver on-the-fly adjustments to handle all sizes of fish. Its all-metal body is specially coated for protection against sand and spray from the crashing waves making them a great choice for surf fishing for hard fighting fish like Tope, Leerfish and Smoothhound. 

Surf anglers can also opt for the Fathom® II for repeated distance and the ultimate torque, just for starters. The Fathom II range has a centrifugal braking system for controlling your cast. These rugged multiplier reels come into their own over rough ground and mixed ground where their strength and ruggedness makes them a go to choice for sea anglers chasing large Sea Bass, Dorade and Flatfish. For ultimate distance casting the high performance PENN® Fathom II Casting Special has a magnetic braking system that can be dialled in via a knob to match conditions and tactics. Take an eagle-eye to all the Surf Fishing Reels in our collection. Have a good catch and enjoy the spray.
