The BB pin is a facinating reel. I first became interested in the reel after reading Be Quiet Go a Angling. R Walker made two reels one for BB the other for himself. One reel had a brake the other did not. These reels were made in his grandparents lawnmower factory.  I made the first reel in 1980 from information and pictures of the reel I had obtained  and from information from my dear friend Marice Ingham. A short while later I was able to handle the original reel and was given permission to make copies,. I took measurments and photos of all the parts and a draughtsman friend produced  proper detailed drawings.

The reel is 5 7/8 diameter and 1 1/4 wide the spool is 3/4 wide. It has a check lever and brake lever facing forward. The reel is made from two billets of aluminium and is caged construction. I did not make mine from magnesium because of the fire risk. 

This is a fantastic reel for carp fishing close in with float and bamboo rod. This reel has landed many carp to 28Ib and pike over 30Ib      £950
