Open-face Fishing Reel
The hardest part of this project was solving the problem of making the spool run in and out while the bail spun around the outside.
About this creation

Bail mechanism locked in open position and ready to cast

A closer look at the inner workings

It has a reciprocating spool and an opening and closing bail. The bail locks in place for casting. Bare in mind this is just a preliminary version. The bail mechanism isn't strong enough to pull in line under any pressure, the retrieve rate is very low, and there is no drag system. I hope to solve these mechanical problems in the future, but for now I'm satisfied enough with the reel to share it with you.

Quoting Camden Chester Great to see a Reel in the Moc Pages, Any chance there are instructions for this? Looks like a great build
Thanks for the comment Camden! I took the reel apart a while back, but I'll try reassembling it from memory and update with instructions.
