Galvan Fly Reels: Family Owned and Operated

Galvan Limited Edition Torque

Galvan Fly reels began 25 years ago in Sonora California by Boni Galvan. Galvan found a need for a new reel while fishing the high mountain streams of California’s Sierra Nevadas. Boni, a fishing enthusiast and machinist by trade, set out to create a lighter and smoother drag while maintaining durability that can match the moxie of a fisherman.

Galvan went from producing just 8-10 reels a month out of his garage to manufacturing thousands with the highest quality materials and standards. From start to finish, Galvan Fly Reels are made in the USA. This results in one of the highest quality products on the market. Each reel goes through an in-depth inspection process during assembly to exceed industry standards; all while being family owned.

Galvan Reels are simple, yet rugged. Models are designed with a “classic new age style” and a variety of color assortments (limited edition camo featured below). A custom anodizing process creates the camo pattern. A side effect of the process is a very attractive subtle textured look that is unique to the fly fishing industry.

The Torque reel drag system is smooth to adjust and offers a wide spectrum of resistance to meet your fishing needs. On the Torque fly reel, Galvan incorporated a quick release button to interchange spools quickly and efficiently. The reel is easily convertible from left hand retrieve to right hand by changing the pawl spring.
