Since Nautilus first began making reels, we’ve given great attention to the Spey/two-handed segment of this sport. Over time, we have gathered a huge following in this niche fly fishing market, and we are constantly listening to what is coming and going and adapting our reels to meet the needs of these anglers.
The Nautilus NV Spey reels have been designed to maximize the effectiveness of thin running lines, and we feature the popular Giga arbor design for lightning fast line pick up and minimal line memory – critical components of distance casting.
These spools have been named to reflect the recommended range of grain weights for line heads, starting at the lowest recommended to the biggest line that will comfortably fit with at least 150 yards of 30 lb. backing.
The NV Spey 400-550 will fit your existing NV-G 8/9 frame and the NV Spey 450-750 fits the NV-G 9/10 frame.
PERFECT IN BALANCE, FORM AND FUNCTION.

Engineered for SERIOUS BUSINESS
Whether Spey or overhead casting a two handed rod, the reel requirements remain the same: large capacity to fit a modest amount of backing under these biggest of lines, and just enough weight to balance a 12 to 15 foot two-handed rod. The Nautilus NV Spey reels was specifically built to address the needs of Spey casters and two-handers. Ideal backing capacity and added weight for a perfectly balanced outfit.
CCF Brake with larger drag, ceramic bearings. Giga arbor, the big game über-arbor. Perpetually repels contaminants from braking system. Write the line weight on the spool. Wrap your line or hang your fly on it.
