Galvan Euro Nymph Reel


$225.00 - $485.00

The Galvan Euro Nymph (G.E.N.) reel has been specifically designed for the needs of european nymphing. The GEN 3.7 reel features the same quality machining, anodization, components and design you would expect from Galvan, but the GEN reel has an extra large arbor and full cage design.  

The extra large arbor is ideal for euro nymphing style lines that are so thin they don't require much capacity on the reel.  The full cage design eliminates the issue of those super thin lines sneaking between the reel frame and the spool.  In addition, the weight and balance of a euro rod and reel is particularly important, and the Galvan Euro Reel offers an optional GEN Weight Kit to help balance your outfit, especially for longer rods.

The reel capacity on the following chart is based on Scientific Anglers Mastery Euro Tactical Nymph Mono line (Competition Nymph Line) and 20 lb. backing.

Here is what Galvan has to say about their Galvan Euro Reels (G.E.N.) reels:

With the sport of European Style Nymphing becoming more popular; the demand for a high performance, high quality, flyfishing reel has been met by Galvan’s New G.E.N reel.  The key feature of this reel are it’s extreme large arbor and closed frame design.  The extreme large arbor design, for those not familiar with the sport, accommodates the much smaller in diameter Euro Nymph lines.  The closed frame design creates a no slip through gap between the spool and frame also accommodating to the slimmer line profile of the sport.  An added feature of the closed frame is that it also fits the Torque and Rush spools.  A 3 pawl drag engagement is also incorporated to provide ultimate drag strength and rotation.
