This RVR Series is specifically designed for trout. Bauer offer sizes 2/3, 4/5, 6/7 with a Gold Hub. The Euro-Nymph and Microspey feature a CH Hub
Choose the RVR 2/3 for fishing small streams and creeks. This is a lightweight reel designed with a smaller capacity and perfect drag for trout and similar angling.
The RVR 4/5 is designed for larger trout, larger water and longer casts. The backing capacity, drag and weight are well-suited for more varied techniques of 4 and 5wt rods including floating lines, light sink tips, dries or wets.
The RVR 6/7 is your reel for heavier line weights used to target trophy fish with large, wind-resistant or heavy flies. The increased backing capacity is sufficient to handle 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.
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 compared to traditional fly lines.
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 adjusted to balance the longer, two-handed rods used for Trout Spey. Reel capacities accommodate the wide variety of Scandi and Skagit style lines available.
