We have been in development on the RVR reels for more than two years. We started with a groundbreaking and beautifully modern design and quickly found out how challenging it is to machine a reel this complex. No one had ever seen anything like it. The complexity and double anodized design of the RVR would prove too difficult to achieve on a conventional 3-Axis machine, so we sought out the newest 5-Axis machines available. The result speaks for itself.
SPECIALIZED TROUT REELS FOR A VARIETY OF TECHNIQUES.
Small streams and spring creeks are the ideal waters for 2 and 3wt fishing. You’re not likely to ever need 70 yards of backing here, or a drag capable of stopping a steelhead. What you will need is a lightweight reel designed with the smaller capacity and perfect drag for those very special angling situations.
The line and backing capacity, drag and weight of this reel have been appropriately designed for the more sizeable trout, larger water, longer casts and more varied techniques associated with 4 and 5wt rods. Whether you’re fishing a floating line or a light sink tip, whether fishing dries or wets, this is the ideal reel.
A larger reel for the heavier line weights used when targeting trophy fish with large, wind-resistant or heavy flies. The increased backing capacity is more than sufficient to handle even 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.

RVR Trout reels are midnight black with a secondary gold anodizing.
I’d offer offer colors . I ordered this in spite of the bilious looking gold because of my happiness with other Bauer reels
I teamed up my RVR with my Winston Air2 and while using the Winston line. The balance was perfect. In my 19 years of guiding I have yet to see a better setup on the water. The RVR is graceful and full of slowing power for those big fish runs. Well done Bauer!
The RVR is elegant in looks and perfect in performance. Smooth drag, large arbor and did I mention this reel is incredible looking! I couldn't find a better reel!
As a full time fishing guide I need equipment that performs flawlessly. Bauer reels do that! Hands down the best in the business.
How would I define smooth, reliable, craftsmanship, balance and a true work of art in one word? RVR! I know that's three letters but damn! What a thing of beauty! I paired the RVR with a nine foot RL Winston Air 2 five weight and it's a perfect match. Extremely well balanced with a RIO heavy 5 weight floating line. For those of us that have been in the game for awhile you will understand what I mean when I tell you that the fish don't stand a chance.
I've been fly fishing in Montana for the last 45 years and absolutely love it! Started with Fennwick back in the day and graduated to graphite and thought there could never be an improvement. Jumped into Sage and a lazy mans automatic Perrine reel and thought I was unstoppable. Recently bumped up to RL Winston and Bauer and could die tomorrow knowing that when I get to heaven there will be the exact same outfit waiting for me when I got there because I doubt He'd allow anything else! Lol!
For those of you that may be on the fence you need to trust me and take the plunge.....you won't regret it. Best investment I've ever made when it comes to my passion for fly fishing. Nice job! And thanks for all the customer support along the way, you definitely deserve five out five on this one.
