DAP Reels/Fine Tackle - "The Can"

I would guess that "The Can" project has been in the works for a couple years now and Christian Hörgren of Fine Tackle and DAP Reels have recently made an initial offering of ten wooden boxed sets of these unique fly reels.

DAP Reels and Fine Tackle have created something truly special here and each boxed set includes a black aluminum reel frame, non-ported black aluminum spool, an amber PEI spool, and a leather case. 

If someone is looking for the perfect compliment for their Fine Tackle trout weight fly rod build, then this is it.  "The Can" would look perfect on the Kabuto Rods 7653 that Christian built for me several years ago.

These limited first edition sets are priced at €650, which in U.S. dollars figures to about $880.

This first set of ten will sell out quickly and if you are interested in ordering please contact Christian by email at

Absolutely incredible of course, and I imagine they fish as great as they look. WOW for revisiting classic reel architecture...!

Kevin...I figured you'd get a kick out of this Martin'esque reel project.

Brady...there is NEVER enough gear...
