Okuma Sierra 7/8 fly reel tool

I seem to have misplaced my tool that came with this reel. It is to remove the bearing to switch from left to right hand retrieval. I cant find a picture of it or even listed anywhere. I appreciate the help.

Not familiar with Okuma reels, but many fly reels with one-way bearings only require a screw driver. If the is a spring clip retaining the bearing, paper clip can sometimes dislodge it.

Taylor,
These are inexpensive reels.
So, just purchase a new reel and the tool you need will come with it.
