ORCAn Craig Barber came up to me at the Tulsa Convention with a small brass reel he found in upper New York state about 15 years ago. It is very well made and except for a probable solder repair to the foot at some point, is in excellent cosmetic and working condition. Diameter is 1 3/4” by 1.5” wide. I believe it was fished under the reel as a right hand retrieve fly reel, given the orientation of the round pillar that acts as a roller guide. The spool diameter is the same as that of the side plate, explaining the unique (? To me at least) construction of the pillars, a simpler construction than raised pillars if one lacks a mill. The pillars have been marked along with the side plate to indicate where they should be placed. Nice little solid-made reel. Craig indicated that he had kept it long enough and then gifted it to me! We have such a great club and members like Craig abound! Yet another opportunity for me to find a suitable way to pay it forward... thanks, Craig!
