Nautilus NV Spey Reels

Whether Spey or overhead casting a 2 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. Whether you chose one of our CCF reels or one of the brand new NV Spey reels, you cannot go wrong. The CCF 12 line was built with Spey casters in mind, as were the larger NV reels.

These large arbor reels deliver extremely fast line pick up that will help you put the fish on the reel in record time. Furthermore, the sealed Nautilus CCF Disc Brake System will prevent water, dirt or sand from contaminating the drag surface, and will protect the most delicate tippets to increase the odds of landing the fish of a lifetime. These reels will deliver consistent and flawless performance and will never hydroplane if submerged, nor glaze over in freezing conditions.

Rio Fly lines and Airflo have helped us measure these reels for exact backing capacities, and these charts should be of great help for you in picking the right reel for the set up you are using.

Since we first began making the Nautilus reels we have always kept an eye on the Spey and two-hander segment of this sport. For 9 years now we have published our Spey specs charts to help you figure out what reel to match to your favorite Spey rod and line. Over time we have gathered a huge following in this niche fly fishing market and we are constantly listening to what is coming, what is going and adapting our reels to upcoming trends.

The current trend in Spey casting is using thinner running lines that help casters shoot the lines farther with less effort. While great for distance, this has created new tolerance requirements in fly reel design.

The Nautilus NV Spey reels have been designed to maximize the effectiveness of these thin running lines, and we incorporated the hugely popular Giga arbor design for lightening fast line pick up and minimal line memory.

The NV Spey Reels have been named to reflect the recommended range of grain weights of the line heads for each, starting at the lowest recommended to the biggest line that will comfortably fit with at least 150 yards of 30 lb. backing.

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. The Brembo® brakes of fly fishing reels.
The hooker comes standard in all NV models but can be fit onto any CCF-X2 or FWX reel. It consists of a red anodized 6061 series aluminum button that’s machined to screw into the back of the reel seat. No more leader slipping in between the frame and the spool! Wrap your line around the HookerTM, and move to the next pool or flat. Only Nautilus Reels!
The Nautilus ActivSealTM is a precision machined proprietary seal that’s featured in all our CCF-X2 and NV series reels. The ActivSeal actively repels water, sand, salt and any other contaminant to keep the braking system intact and consistent. Whether great lakes steelheading in 20-degree weather or on a Seychelles flat in 100-degree tropical torture, ActivSeal technology keeps your reel functioning at the highest level, despite the elements. Dunk it and batter it with sand, then go back to fishing. Only Nautilus Reels!
A favorite technology to come out of the Nautilus think-tank, we laser etch a white spot to the inside of the spool, leaving a textured surface that can be written on. Anglers can then use a thin permanent marker to write the line weight or any other information you need. No more washed out or peeled of line stickers! If you ever need to change it, wipe it off with alcohol for a blank slate.
