This is my friend Terry’s most recent reel project. The intended use is steelhead and salmon fishing with heavy tippets.
Photo of the finished reel. This reel is 3.75 inch in diameter and is patterned after a Hardy Marquis #9, except that the spool is 1/8 inch wider.
Front of the spool and inside of frame, also the spool retaining screw.
Inside of frame showing two pawl layout. Two pawls increase the outgoing drag. If drag is too much, one pawl spring can be removed.
