Welcome to The Reel People, LLC

We are a premier reel and rod service shop located in Interlochen, Michigan about 15 miles southwest of Traverse City. We work on all makes and models of fishing reels for fresh water, salt water, including spinning, baitcast, conventional and fly fishing gear.

Keeping your reels in tip-top shape should be #1 on your list whether you are a recreational or a die hard angler. Making sure they are properly cleaned and lubed will increase the life of your reels and the amount of fish you catch. Servicing your reels annually will remove build-up of dirt and grime which overtime will cause the reel to become progressively worse and lessen it’s performance.

For your convenience we have drop boxes in the fishing departments at the following locations:

Frankfort: Big Bob’s Up North Outfitters
Traverse City: MC Sports & Gander Mountain

We have agreements with the following for reel repair, they will give you our information to ship to us:

Clare & Gaylord: Jay’s Sporting Goods
Linwood: Frank’s Great Outdoors
Pinconning: Northwoods Wholesale Outlet
