Hello there fellow ORCAns,

I am looking for an excellent condition handle for my recently acquired 40 yard Four Brothers Delite fly reel. I have a handle from an unmarked Pflueger recessed face fly reel that fits, but the counter balance is slightly brassed. It would be a shame to stick with that since my Delite reel is almost mint (including a very crisp Four Brothers stamp), and is just missing the handle. If you have an excellent 40 or 60 yard handle for a Delite or another Pflueger/Four Brothers reel (or parts reel) with either a white or black knob, please let me know. I think some Seminole reels also had a similar handle. The first photo below is of my reel without the handle. The second photo is of the unmarked Pflueger reel I have with the usable but not great condition handle. The print under that reel shows the correct fancy design Four Brothers Delite handle.

Thanks!

George

Tough handle to replace. I checked my parts stock and I don't have any that shape. Good Luck on the search.
