I am trying to locate a one-handed fly fishing reel that is similar to a single action reel but has a lever like the automatic reels. The reel is operated by pumping the lever to reel in the line. There is no spring winding involved.

I saw the reel at the Fly Tackle Dealers Show in Denver in the early ?90s, but didn?t get any information about the manufacturer or distributor.

I am involved with setting up a fly fishing program for ?Wounded Warriors? at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC, and such a reel would be of great help to those with only one-hand.

Any information about the one-handed reel or any other fly fishing or tying equipment for the disabled or modifications that could be made would be appreciated by me and by the wounded warriors.
