Broken Fly Fishing Reel

4 posts in this topic

Now I did it!! I dropped my fly fsihing reel on the garage floor & broke the return/wind lever. Any one have any place I can contact
about replacement parts for a 30+ year old reel? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to get parts from the Original Manufacturer. I also have a broken bait-casting reel from around the 50's that I might want to restore. Any leads on where to find old parts like this would be appreciated. smile.gif
Thnks!

MnSportsman,
What kind of a reel is it. I have some old fly fishing reels and rods that I came across in my parents garage when they moved. Looks like some of the reels were never used.. Let me know and I'll take a look to see what I have.

if you don't want to buy a new one, and you can't find anyone near by, i would highly recommend the following, call em him up he'll probably tell you in 10 seconds whether he can do it, or what your chances are of getting it fixed,

I sent him a 60's vintage Johnson Sabre and he had all the parts it needed and charged a fair price too.
