Kapusta Reels was started in 2008.  It is a one person operation.

As an engineer & toolmaker, I was fascinated by the craftsmanship of fly reel makers.  I decided, with some encouragement from my friend, Tim Borski, to start making some reels.

I made & continue to make them for me, my family, and for friends.

Each year I produce approximately 12 units, from December to April.  I keep a couple, donate a few, and sell a few to The Angling Company in Key West.

The porting, the pretty stuff,  is a time intensive effort to create one of a kind reels in a wide variety of diameters and profiles.

My aim is to create functional artwork.

I appreciate all the positive responses I have received over the years.
