Default Shakespeare Russell 1895 ???

I was given this reel by my Great Aunt, it had been her husband's and was on an old bamboo rod that is a wall hanger now.
I had another reel on my 7wt but put this one on to see how it felt. The weight seemed to balance out the rod very well compared to the plastic one I had on it.
The question is, with the spool inside the frame it can't be palmed for drag, I wondered if there is a way to slow a running fish other than sticking my finger up inside the reel?
