Reel RepairsMeet Chris

Chris can tailor any service to your needs whether you are a professional charter captain, casual or a weekend warrior. He repairs and upgrades fishing reels, because he loves to fish and work with his hands. This is an enjoyable way he gets to do both.

He services all of the Western New York area which includes: Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Hamburg, Orchard Park, Cheektowaga, Amherst, Williamsville, and Lockport.
