Bauer RVR Fly-Fishing Fly Spool
These beautifully crafted reels push the limits of conventional machining to provide superior performance in defined trout angling situations. They are not just resized versions of a single design, but, depending on intended use, are optimized for specific applications through differing arbor diameters and capacities, proper torques, as well as weight that offers a perfectly balanced system. All reels feature our incredibly smooth, fully-sealed carbon fiber drag system.
RVR 2/3 Small streams and spring creeks are the ideal waters for 2 and 3wt. fishing. You’re not likely to ever need 70 yards of backing here, or a drag capable of stopping a steelhead. What you will need is a lightweight reel designed with the smaller capacity and perfect drag for those very special angling situations.
RVR 4/5 The line and backing capacity, drag and weight of this reel have been appropriately designed for the more sizeable trout, larger water, longer casts and more varied techniques associated with 4 and 5wt rods. Whether you’re fishing a floating line or a light sink tip, whether fishing dries or wets, this is the ideal reel.
RVR 6/7 A larger reel for the heavier line weights used when targeting trophy fish with large, wind-resistant or heavy flies. The increased backing capacity is more than sufficient to handle even the longest running trout. Intended applications are streamer fishing with floating or sink-tip lines, stillwater angling with floating, intermediate and full-sinking lines, as well as handling the aggressively-tapered lines needed to turn over large dry flies, poppers, articulated streamers, and double nymph rigs.
EURO-NYMPH The super large arbor of this reel design addresses the unique capacity requirements of the level lines used in European-style nymphing. The spool size and capacity is greatly reduced as these fly lines don’t have the typical thick belly like a traditional fly line. Hi-stickers, your reel has arrived.
MICROSPEY Specifically designed for Micro Spey angling, this reel handles 3, 4, and 5 weight spey lines. This model features a full frame to prevent thin running line from slipping out of the reel. The weight of this reel has been carefully considered to balance the longer, two-handed rods used for Trout Spey. Reel capacities accommodate the wide variety of Scandi and Skagit style lines available.

What matters most in a fly reel is reliability.
You can’t put a price on that.
A reel must be smooth, seamless, and consistent – every time, in all conditions. The slightest hitch – or worse, a complete lockup – means the difference between landing the fish of a lifetime or losing it.
