“Preserving Angling Traditions one reel at a time.”
This website is the sole source for One-Pfoot reel parts — Made-in-USA parts for vintage Medalist fly reels.
Thank you for visiting my page. I machine several parts for vintage Medalist fly reels as well as reel feet for vintage JW Young reels. I have been doing so since I bought the business from its founder, Bill Franke, in 2012, shortly after my retirement. Since that time, I’ve sold One-Pfoot parts to anglers in twenty-four countries. And while people continue to copy my parts, they have never matched the quality (or value) of One-Pfoot upgrade parts.
I currently machine reel feet, drag (ratchet) plates, brake adjusting screws, round lineguides, replacement handles, counterbalances, aluminum latch covers, sculpted frame pillars, and click pawls (for models 1494 through 1498). I also offer frame screws, and both cam- and pawl springs. These three product offerings are also made in the USA, and by well established specialty shops.
I frequently upgrade customer reels. You can see pictures of both upgraded reels and my parts, as well as some fishing pictures on my Instagram account: @danhillerie.
In retirement, my wife and I travel regularly, and I also travel to various wilderness areas for extended solo camping and fishing trips. I do not monitor my voicemail or email during these trips, and would appreciate your understanding if, at times, it takes me a while to respond to you.
If you would like to learn more about my parts as well as how to order, please contact me: email@example.com or (814) 969-9411.
