Default Need bail spring & screw Mitchell 488

You really start to feel irrelevant when everyone you ask about parts for your reel starts with "Ohhh, that's a tough one."

It had been a long time since the reel had been used. The first time I opened the bail, it came off in my hand as parts skittered across the pier & through the cracks.

One of my Dad's favorite reels now needs bail spring & screw. This Mitchell 488 would love to go fishing again. If you have parts or an old reel to provide a transplant, please let me know.

Thanks, Eddie
