“After a lifetime of fly fishing and experience with nearly every fly reel made, I’ve finally settled on the best. The high-performance Bauer Fly Reels are the reels I trust for the rarest, most powerful fish from the most remote places on earth.”
– Jeff Currier, Global Fly Fishing
NEW SST REELS
Introduced in 2017, our latest reel combines striking design with superior, exceptionally smooth performance. Featuring a narrow profile frame design, the SST offers a proven fully sealed carbon fiber drag system, star drag knob operation and a variety of star color options.
Bauer remains focused on a simple objective: to manufacture precision reels that are unmatched in terms of function and aesthetics. Considered the Swiss watch of fly reels, they are designed to work perfectly and surpass your expectations. Whether your quarry is trout, tarpon or steelhead, your reel must perform as intended to provide success.
Bauer fly reels are designed and handcrafted in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty. They are precision-machined to tolerances down to 1/1OOOth of an inch from aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. The spool and carbon fiber drag system rotate on sealed precision stainless steel ball bearings.
FULLY SEALED CARBON FIBER DRAG SYSTEM
Carbon Fiber is the perfect choice for a fly reel drag. Unlike cork, its performance is not dependent on lubrication. And, unlike polymers, carbon isn’t affected by temperature changes. The Bauer Carbon Fiber system is fully sealed and delivers silky smooth and consistent performance in all conditions. No maintenance required.
THE BAUER CLUTCH
Our clutch provides a uniquely smooth and seamless engagement of the drag and a silent retrieve. Manufactured from non-corrosive materials, it is far more durable and reliable than the roller clutch bearing system commonly used in other fly reels.
