I finally got around to building one of these, as a gift for a friend…an avid fisherman.

My thanks go out to Deeman, the original poster…and to Thelt, who sent me a copy of the plan.
I made this out of pine and walnut.
The handle actually spins with the help of a concealed bearing. It spins, but is not hooked up to the paper roll.

Thanks for looking.

Love it and would also like to see plans.
I think this might just drive my wife over the edge. Already too much fishing gear lying around.

Very nicely done. A fisherman will sure appreciate it. His wife, maybe not so much :)
