Product Description


Build a Fly Fishing Reel with the NH Council and the Basil Woods Chapter of Trout Unlimited!

This session occurred on 2/12/2011. 10 new reelsmiths built their first reels!

The Eclectic Angler is conducting a special Reelsmithing Workshop Fundraiser sponsored by the NH Council and the Basil Woods Chapter of Trout Unlimited on February 12th, 2011 starting at 9am! $50 of each registration will be donated to Trout Unlimited for purchasing chillers for the Trout in the Classroom program. The workshop will be held at the Shaker Road School in Concord, NH and is limited to 25 participants. 

The cost to attend the workshop is $130 and includes 3 to 4 hours of instruction, your choice of a brass or aluminum Reel Kit with either a click drag or silent friction drag and all of the tools and supplies you will need to complete your reel. You can make your kit selection when you add the Workshop to your cart. But don't worry, if you change your mind later, let us know and we can change your selection! A $50 deposit is required to reserve your spot but full payment is preferable. Space is limited so sign-up now!
