  1. Vintage Fly Reel Restoration Presented By Paul Ricker Algonkin Fly Fishers February 19, 2009

  2. Why buy a Vintage Reel? • Affordable alternative to modern reels • Restoration of long forgotten gear hidden in basement • Nostalgia - opportunity to fish with older (and sometimes better) technology • Backup reel to complement current gear

  3. Acquiring a Reel • Garage / Yard Sale • Antique Stores • EBay • Online Fly Fishing Forums

  4. What am I looking For? • Frame is not cracked, bent, or warped • Spindle is straight and not worn • No missing parts (Latch Cover, Drag Knob, handle, etc.) • Limited corrosion (Paint and finish wear is acceptable)

  5. Desirable Reels (1) • Under $50 • Pflueger Medalist, or Gem • Heddon-Daisy 300 series • Martin MG series, or 67 series • Ocean 35, or 76 • Miesselbach Rainbow or Airex

  6. Desirable Reels (2) • $50-100 • J. W. Young Condex, Pridex, or Beaudex • $100-300+ • Hardy Perfect, St. John, St. George, Marquis, or Lightweight • Scientific Anglers System series • Orvis CFO or Battenkill (*English Made)

  15. Cleaning & Maintaining Your Reel • Take the reel down as far as you feel comfortable. • Wipe everything down with paper towels or q-tips

  16. Vinegar-water bath. This is generally four parts warm water to one part vinegar. • 30 to 45 minutes for painted reels, or rubber side plates and handles • 1 hour for lead finished alloy fly reels • 2 hours for plated brass • 3 hours for bare brass or German silver (Take a soft tooth brush to the debris every 10-15 minutes)

  17. Dilute soap bath (Dawn Soap)- very dilute. • Final rinse - very thorough cold-water rinse here. • Air dry overnight • Rub with a wax or silicone guncloth

  18. Lube and reassemble • Use Quantum Hot Sauce • Hot Sauce Grease on drag gears, and on worn and wobbly spindles. • Hot Sauce Lube (light oil) on spindles/bushings, handle spindles, pawl stanchions, bearings, drag blocks and threads.

  19. My Reel Experience

  20. Pflueger Medalist Tips • Pre-1966 reels are most desirable • Circle Trade mark on latch cover • Stamped Made in Akron O USA or Patented on reel frame • No Letters after model number stamp • 6 Rivets around spool latch cover • Reel foot seat may not fit all reel seats • Replacement feet and parts available from OnePfoot.com • Use blue Loctite on frame screws
