How to disassemble a Gold Cup III fly reel.

By BobbyP in Fly Fishing,

Hey guys I was wondering if you could answer a question. I have a Gold Cup III reel that I've had for a long time and for the life of me I can't figure out how to take the spool off. It was originally a gift from my dad when I was first starting off fly fishing when I was younger and its held up well over the years, although I don't use it anymore. I lent it to a friend of mine to use when we went to fish the beach yesterday.  Anyway I've taken all the parts off that I can and the spool still won't come off. Its making this extremely annoying squeak since it was used and its driving me crazy. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.


Lines Tight,




P.S. Caught this 11lb Snook on the Gold Cup yesterday
