We get great satisfaction from restoring old fishing rods and antique fishing reels. Unless otherwise requested, we seek to restore the vintage rod back to the original factory design, as close as we possibly can. Some components and threads are no longer available, but in most cases, we can replicate the original look-and-feel.
For vintage reels, if requested, we can sand and strip the remaining paint and repaint it as closely as possible to the original color. In some cases, we may be able to obtain new labels and graphics. If that’s not possible, we’ll take over the existing label in order not to lose the identifying marks.
