Temple Fork Outfitters: BVK Reel

Temple Fork Outfitters released their new BVK Reel at this year’s 2011 ICAST show.  This rod was created to complement their already successful BVK series of rods.  The BVK would be equally at home in both fresh and salt water, perfect for the kayak fisherman who wants a well rounded fly reel. This great new product by TFO took “Best in Show” in the Fly Fishing Category.

“BVK reels are precision machined from bar stock aluminum.  The clear silver anodized frames and spools are ported to eliminate excess weight.  Equally at home in both fresh and salt waters the super large arbor design provides faster line pick up and helps the maintenance free drag system work at a more constant pressure that standard arbor reels.  Delrin/Stainless stacked discs make the drag silky smooth and the one way clutch bearing makes engagement instant and left to right hand conversion simple.”



This reel was created to be super light and has a great balance when paired with the BVK rod.  

I’m still an amateur kayak fly angler but after messing around with this rod and reel, I’m in love.  It is certainly one of the next items on my “wish list”.
