Bauer Reels


Hart Montgomery represents Bauer in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

Designed and manufactured in the USA, Bauer fly reels are precision machined from 100% aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion resistance and come with a lifetime warranty.

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.
