Friday August 3, from 10 AM –early afternoon. -- An opportunity to make your own fly reel in a Reelsmithing Workshop with The Eclectic Angler, Michael in the Paul Dahlie Education Center.
No previous metalworking experience is required to take the workshop -- just a desire to make a fly reel and willingness to use a little elbow grease and get a little dirty. All necessary tools are provided. Participants will build one of Michael’s newest, and attractive reels. The 3-inch diameter reel will feature a click drag system, hold 90 feet of 4-weight fly line, and handle 25 yards of backing. Participants will receive a “Ported Aluminum Reel” kit and walk out with a functioning reel. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity.
The fee for the reel-making workshop is $125. The program is limited to 25 participants. Pre-registration is required. Please contact the Center at 845-439-4810 or send an email to flyfish@catskill.net .
