Fine Tackle - Inside The Process - Part 5

The Fine Tackle build series continues with Christian Hörgren fitting the reel seat and hardware for the custom Swift Fly Fishing Epic 580 that he is working on.

Christian wrote...  "I mortise my cork reel seats by hand. Sometimes I use a scalpel and cut a recessed mortise, but on this build I decided to make it seamless with a file and grit paper. It’s important to aim for a tight fit, and let the flex of the cork do the job to keep the reel in place. "

Check out the Fine Tackle website and Facebook page for the latest shop news and most recent builds.  Christian always has something interesting going on to check out.
