Bauer Fly Reels
Bauer Fly Reels revolutionized the fly fishing world 25 years ago with an award-winning design that combined superior large arbor performance with an innovative yet simple “zero-backlash” drag clutch. With a background in race cars and precision technology, Jon Bauer had a different perspective on how a fly reel should work. By applying principals of basic physics, he determined the best design for a direct drive fly reel was one with a large arbor spool and oversized drag surface that minimized the variance of movement and maximized drag stopping power. The result was a reel with vastly improved line handling and retrieval, as well as superior drag performance.
Over the past 25 years, Bauer Fly Reels have continued to develop new design innovations, precision engineering and unmatched performance. Today, Bauer Fly Reels are considered to be among the finest made and have earned a reputation among serious anglers and guides as the “Swiss Watch of Fly Reels.”
