Description

On a warm and sunny day in May, 1995, Larry Lauve and Robert Douglas joined Oscar Kovalovsky at his home in Kernville, California, for a series of conversations about Oscar's life, about working with his father, Arthur Kovalovsky, and about the reels Oscar designed and built. In these pages, you will read about Oscar’s background and history, his relationship to his famed reelmaking father and a host of legendary anglers ranging from Harry Adams to Zane Grey, his opinion of other California reel makers like J.A. Coxe, Arthur Stead, and Carl Klein, and his own theories on reel making, drag mechanisms, and both saltwater and fly reel design.
