I was cleaning my fly line last night, and after pulling the line on and off the reel a couple of times, the reel no longer has any drag and just free spools. I am totally bummed!! It's obvious that something internally has come undone, I can hear something loose inside when I shake it.
So, anyone know how to open one up? or, where it can be sent to be repaired? I don't believe Jack Charlton still produces reels, and since he sold to 3M, I'm not sure where/who might service this puppy. The reel is a 8450C.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I love this reel and it pretty much is useless right now.

Been even catching a few some days.
Watched a guy get a nice one on the fly from a boat last night.
Been missing Ken a bunch too,was talking about him with a guy at the beach last night.
"Pretty much daily" ...good to see your back into the swing of it again.
