“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:  or  (814) 969-9411.  

Thank you.
