To my eye, no reels are more beautiful than the classic, serpentine-crank reels of Edward Vom Hofe, Otto Zwarg and Stanley Edward Bogdan. These and other makers inspire me to create modern, bench-made reels featuring this iconic look. By merging traditional aesthetics with contemporary manufacturing, I hope you find Olson reels as elegant as they are functional.
