Hi Paul,
Yes, it was me that sent the photo. The Mitchell 710 reel winds itself up as line is pulled out, but the back of the reel has a ridged circumference that can be gripped and wound to add extra 'recovery'. It wasn't a bad reel, but rather low capacity and heavy. It performed pretty well against most fly reels of the time that had central arbors barely thicker than your little finger.
