James Acord recently created a truly unique reel case for a customer in Vancouver,WA. I’m sure you have heard of Bogdan reels, this is a portrait of Stan Bogdan that was in the New York Times obituary after he passed on last winter. This customer has some Bogdan Salmon reels and James Acord has made him other cases in the past. Check out the photos below to see his amazing skill and craftsmanship.
