If you follow technology trends even a little bit, you know that 3D printing has quite a buzz going. As these printers become smaller and more affordable, people are using them for all sorts of neat stuff. There's been a lot of debate over how they're being incorporated into the gun world, but this article on 3Dprint.com focuses on the freshman design class at Oklahoma State University, and what they're doing with these printers. All of their creations are rather impressive, but I'm most intrigued by one student's spinning reel (top left). Per the article, it's been tested, it's fully functional, and even caught its maker a "stringer of fish." Prompted by the piece, I started poking around to see what else 3D printing is being used for in the fishing world, and Santa, if it's not too late, I'll take a 3D printer, please. You know that awesome feeling you get when a big trout crushes some original fly you created at the vise? How cool would it be to land it on a fly reel you made, too?
