    Finished a nice project today. A guy brought me a nice older Scott rod that had the reel seat buggered up from trying to fit reels that did not have a good fit between the seat and the reel feet that he had been using. i rebuilt the reel seat and built him a new reel (with a foot that fits properly). He uses the Rod for Cutties in North Idaho, so I put a click/pawl check and opened up the bottom of the frame for palming the spool.

    The color of your dark red reel is similar to a South Bend 1185 that I have. As you can see in the photos its a perfect style reel.
