My uncle gave me this old Pflueger 641 ball bearing spinner reel which is in pretty good condition

the only thing is that it doesn't have a bail

it has a some type of bolt coming out of one side, and the piece where the bail connects to where the line comes out on the other

where can i get a new bail? and is this an easy fix?

and if you know anything else about this reel please let me know, like line cap, or anything. not much info online

thanks for any help

The bail was wacked off on purpose.
Old reels tended to slap shut on a hard cast.
The bolt is to open and close with your finger tip. just pull the line in behind the piece of wire bail that's remaining manually.
I cut a 750 Penn and never regretted it.

Fish the reel..

Try this first. Didn't see anything listed for it, but give him a call. He may have a source for one.

Hey ddratler, if anglerspartscan doesn't have it, you might check with Coren's in Chicago - the phone is (773) 631-5202. I don't think they have a webpage, but I have picked up some really hard to find vintage parts there. They've also pointed me to places that did have what I was looking for when they didnt' have it and are good to deal with. I'll keep my eyes open for you. Good luck!
