The L U N A R Hubless Fly Reel
Like every project I've worked on so far - our films and DVD's included, I employ a pretty simple design philosophy. "Look at what everyone else is doing - and don't do that" The L U N A R reel certainly typifies that approach.
The L U N A R reel is a fusion of modern materials and classic design. The L U N A R project has been an 18 month design partnership between myself and renowned fly reel designer Alex Kaplun - we've looked hard at how trout anglers actually use a fly reel and have incorporated many subtle design features that (hopefully) will not be immediately obvious.
