BOOK DESCRIPTION

In The Reelsmith's Primer, author Michael L. J. Hackney has finally made reelsmithing accessible to the inspired angler. With a few basic hand tools, an electric drill, and Michael's proven techniques, material selections, and clear step-by-step instructions, the reader will learn how to create functional and beautiful fly reels.

Following introductory chapters on the tools, materials, and techniques used, the aspiring reelsmith completes the four basic reel sub-assemblies: the frame, spool and drag, handle, and reel foot. The books task-oriented approach helps the reelsmith stay organized and keeps the process enjoyable. The final chapter, Reel Enhancements, presents ideas to customize the basic reel and techniques to help the reader design their own fly reels.
