Bauer Fly Reels

Assembled by hand in Twin Bridges, Montana – the same place all Winston fly rods are made.
Bauer revolutionized the fly reel world in 1995 with an award-winning design that combined superior large arbor performance with an innovative yet simple “zero-backlash” drag clutch. The result was a reel with vastly improved line handling and retrieval, as well as superior drag performance. Over the years, Bauer has continued this tradition of design evolution, precision engineering and unmatched performance. Today, the reels are considered to be among the finest made and have earned a reputation among serious anglers and guides.
Here at the Madison River Fishing Company, we are proud to represent our neighbors. Bauer has invented some of the smoothest fly reels on the planet, winning us over as both hardcore anglers and guides. Feel free to call the shop to find out if a Bauer reel is right for you.
