Nautilus Fly Reels - “Tested on Animals”

Experience. Tradition. Excellence.

Nautilus fly reels are built in the USA and are among the best fly reels on the market. We have personally used their reels on many of our own trips to various saltwater destinations all over the world. At the time this is written, we have never seen a Nautilus Reel fail! That may change but as far as we can tell these are bulletproof fly reels. Nautilus fly reels are the finest reels made and are the fruit of 180 years of family tradition, innovation, and excellence. When you visit the Nautilus Reels factory in Miami, you encounter dedication amplified by passion, diligence fueled by tradition, and generations of experience with machinery. At Nautilus Reels, angler innovators will share with enthusiasm their cutting-edge advancements in fly fishing reel design and manufacturing in light of “Tested on Animals™” research and development with fly-targeted species from steelhead in British Columbia to trout in Montana to tarpon not far from the Nautilus camp. For years, Nautilus Reels has accelerated advancements in reel technology, and light years ahead of the industry standard, Nautilus’ unique history is an important reason why they are always on the forefront.

NAUTILUS CCFX2 - SPOOLS

The newest addition to the Nautilus family is the CCF-X2. The multiple award winning dual action CCF-X2 drag system features twice the drag strength (20lbs+), twice the smoothness and half the startup inertia as the former CCF.

In addition, this reel is fully sealed and loaded with hybrid ceramic bearings, TPX bushings and an oversized drag knob with infinadjust range settings.

The 6/8 is a 4-inch large arbor 6-8 weight reel. For more line pick up, the 8/10 is a great 8 weight with almost 12 inches of line pick up with a WF8 line per turn of the handle. The 4.5-inch 8/10 and 10/12 reels share the same frame and the spools can be interchanged for a set up that covers 8 to 12 weight lines with just an extra spool.

The Silver King is the latest addition to the CCF-X2 line and is the world’s lightest 5-inch diameter true big game reel on the market. This dominator of all things silver picks up 14-inches of line per turn of the handle and will reel in your prize like none other.

Nautilus NV-G  Fly Reels Nautilus NV-G & Monster Fly Reels/Spools

NAUTILUS NV-G

Nothing compares. Drag, design and performance make the NV-G the ultimate fly reel. The NV-G series are built on the tried, tested and trusted NV 5/6 through NV Monster frames, and they feature the patented and award-winning NV CCF Disc Braking System.

The G-Spool design transforms your NV reels into uber-arbor fly reels that pick up line faster than any other comparable reel in the market. The G-Spool (Giga Spool) design reduces the reel weight significantly and generates less line coiling and much faster line retrieval (up to 15 inches per turn on the G-10!).

The unique CNC machining on these reels gives the impression that the backing is floating above the arbor, creating significant air space under the backing, which promotes faster backing drying. Wet backing is the leading cause of corrosion in fly reels, and the G-Spool design dries 14 times faster than traditional designs.

NV CCF: First introduced in 2006, the NV CCF is a stronger, lighter version of the CCF brake. It sports a larger drag, hybrid ceramic bearings, and a titanium drag shaft while delivering the same less than 1% startup inertia as the CCF disc brake. Even at twice the drag surface, this brake unit weighs almost half of that in the CCF line of reels, allowing the NV line to deliver true big game reels that weigh less than many trout reels.
