TFO BVK Fly Reels

Temple Fork Outfitters

TFR BVK 0

While field testing the BVK series of fly rods, we realized the need for a high-performance fly reel that would not only stand up to the most rigorous fishing conditions, but also complement the exceptionally lightweight BVK rods. The BVK series of reels are machined aluminum and anodized for extreme use in fresh or saltwater. The super large arbor design gives these reels a huge line capacity and enables the angler to pick up line with incredible speed.

BVK reels have a fantastic sealed Delrin® and stainless steel drag system that will stand up to any punishment. The reels are highly ported for additional weight savings and are available in moss green.

Spool & Frame Finish

Anodized aluminum reels are extremely corrosion-resistant but should be rinsed with fresh water after exposure to saltwater to help protect them. Warm water and a toothbrush can be used to dissolve any salt buildup, which may be in the reel. Anti-corrosive products such as spray polishes, oils, etc. are not required, but may preserve the long-term aesthetics of the reel.


Lubrication

High quality grease, such as Cal’s 2 Speed, should be periodically applied to:

  1. The threads on the draw bar
  2. All bearings
  3. The spindle where it contacts the bearings within the spool


Drag Surface

Carbon fiber drags do not require any lubricant, but a very thin coat of Cal’s 2 Speed is beneficial.


Removing the Spool

Tools Required: none.

Loosen the drag completely, then turn the spool cap assembly (center of the spool) counter clockwise until the spool is free.


Reversing the Retrieve

Follow procedure above for removing the spool. Slide the carbon fiber drag assembly off of the spindle (310 & 340 models require the removal of an e-clip), slide the one-way roller bearing out of the drag assembly and rotate 180 degrees (blue on top for right-hand retrieve). Re-assemble.
