Reverse Engineering

Postby TheThirstyTrout » Thu Apr 07, 2011 2:09 pm

I went into a fly shop today to get my Dad an early Father's Day gift. It would have been great to build him one, but I'm not there yet. Aside from bringing in his rod to make sure I got one that balances out nicely, I found myself taking apart each reel to see the working parts. I think its safe to say that I've gotten "the bug"

That is one of the ways I learned - taking apart every reel I could find!

Father's Day is 2+ months away. You might be surprised how quickly you can build a great reel.
