Product Description

I've been developing, manufacturing and selling these kits for 7 years with a continuous stream of improvements in materials, design, functionality and value. This version 5 design is the best kit yet with a pre-machined (and elegant) reel foot, multiple finish options, high quality binding head screws and many other enhancements. All kits now include ALL tools you need to assemble and finish your reel including a screw driver, Allen wrench, polish, lubricant and sand paper.

The Classic Ported Raised Pillar Frame Reel Kit is a 3" diameter reel with an asymmetric click check that can be setup for right- or left-hand retrieve. The reel is designed for 4 to 5 weight rods but can be used several weights above and below this depending on your fishing style. The Eclectic Angler fly reel kits are an exceptional value and now all kits come with:

  • a screwdriver
  • a 1/16” Allen wrench
  • course and fine sandpaper
  • Flitz™ polish packet
  • a lubricant packet

...everything you need to complete your reel. Please take a look at our Version 5 Reel Kit Overview for more details, it should answer any questions you have but if not, please contact us at info@eclecticangler.com.

Assembly typically requires two to three hours. Our new multimedia Assembly Guide is online so you can see how easy and fun these kits are to assemble.

We are so confident that you’ll complete your kit that we’re offering this simple guarantee:: simply return your kit to us and we’ll complete it and return it to you ready to fish*. And of course our excellent customer support is only an email away.



* We'll pay return shipping in the US and supplement shipping for international customers. Please contact us for details before returning your kit.



Designed and Manufactured by The Eclectic Angler in the USA!

  1. Good time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2018

    This is a great little project. It was the second one I built. This one I built with the help of a young friend. It was easy enough for him to with just a little help. Now he has a nice reel that he built.

  2. Great use of dozuki documents for the easy to build do-it-yourselfer. 4 Star Review

    Found this project a fun distraction. Can't wait to see how it performs on a 4wt fly rod - Redington Vice. I used a engine swirl via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UHX6HzIv1s It came out great, and showed it off to my fishing buddy at work. I would like to replace the handle with a nice turned wood one.

  3. A Classic reel that you will use and treasure. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2017

    I bought one of Michael's original brass reel kits, years back which I have used as a preferred reel with rods from 6' to 8 '. I only fish with cane and silk, so I can heartily recommend his 'Otter Butter' to grease your silk lines. The classic ported raised pillar frame kit, which I have just assembled promises to serve me well. I just love it, fits so nicely in my palm.
    Thank you Berislav. Hope you enjoy fishing with the new reel!
