Reel Repairs & Reel Servicing
Your fishing reel can often be the most expensive and technical piece of kit in your tackle box. The average modern fishing reel is a complex set of gears and mechanics containing lots of tiny parts – the purpose of each is only known to a select group of highly skilled engineers. It is for this reason that your reel must be treated with respect, and carefully cared for. Regular reel maintenance will keep your equipment in excellent working order, destined to perform at the most critical of times.
Fishing Station offers a full suite of reel repairs and servicing options, completed in-house by our expert reel technicians in our custom-built facility. Our technicians carry years of reel experience, working on an assortment of brands and models. A mechanic by trade, our primary reel repairer is an expert in all mechanical parts.

Your reel and fishing line can be a significant investment. Proper advice and application is crucial for the best performance, without leading to failure at critical moments. With so many types of line available in the market, it is now more important than ever to seek the services of a professional in helping you choose the most appropriate line combination for your reel, rod and fishing adventures.
Fishing Station’s experienced staff cover all varieties of fishing; game, estuary, beach, rock, freshwater, fly and blue water. Our staff are well versed in matching a particular line type to your fishing situation. We have invested heavily in our industry-leading spooling equipment. Our staff can spool almost any line of your choosing onto your new or existing reel using our on-site hydraulic PSI line tensioner and precision line winder.
A custom designed fishing rod can provide a tailored solution to the most unique of fishing situations. Most factory rods are “one size fits all”, designed so anyone can use them. They provide little specialisation, and advanced anglers often crave a more customised approach to their situations.

From beginner anglers to tournament veterans, our team will be able to build a rod to any requirement.

Australia-Wide Servicing by Courier
Reels: use adequate protection to prevent the reel from moving during transit. We recommend either bubble wrap, plenty of newspaper, foam packaging etc and a sturdy cardboard box.
Rods: if the rod is more than 1pc, take apart. Place cardboard over all guides and tips. Place the rod inside a length of PVC pipe or strong cylindrical cardboard packaging. Note: most couriers have length limits of 1.5m.
