Bauer Fly Reels


Innovation and advanced technology is what auto-racing champion Jon Bauer introduced to fly fishing over two decades ago. The award winning MacKenzie large arbor reel revolutionized fly reel design. Having come from a different background of race cars and precision technology, Jon looked at things differently when considering the function of the fly reel. Applying the principals of basic physics it was obvious that the best design for a direct drive fly reel was with a large arbor spool to minimize the variance of moment arm effect during the use of the reel. This simple principal improved all aspects of fly reel function; line handling, line retrieval and drag performance.

Bauer products are put to the test daily by our customers, guides and staff. Our goal is to pursue superior performance and not to accept convention as “good enough.” Our passion for fly fishing drives our goal to create innovative, quality products that enhance the fly fishing experience. Join us in the pursuit of excellence.

All Bauer reels are precision machined in the USA, from 100% aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. The spool and drag system rotate on sealed, precision stainless steel ball bearings. The patented, non-corrosive Bauer Zero-Backlash clutch provides a seamless engagement of the disc drag with no hesitation or jerk and permits the user to easily change retrieve direction or service the clutch without tools.

The highly developed, floating carbon fiber drag system delivers silky smooth performance at all settings and in all conditions without fluctuation, run after run—no maintenance required. This critical function can not be tested at the fly shop, but only on the water hooked up. So get hooked up with the Bauer Super-Smooth drag experience.

Designed and Manufactured in the USA. Every reel is crafted and given its final inspection by our staff in Ashland, Oregon. The reels have a lifetime warranty and are serviced by the same people who produce them.
