Vintage fly reels

have been studied by fly fishting reel manufacturers, refined, redesigned and remodeled. They modified the reel drag system, the design and the arbor sizes to come up with revolutionary fly angling equipment. From the beginning, anglers wanted a rod reel combo that would let them hone their fly casting skills. Some of the early fly fishing reels were masterpieces and world class anglers sought after them.

Fly fishing anglers knew they had a great fly fishing reel. Only the test of time could create a great opportunity for these fly fishing reels to become vintage models. Crafters would put time and effort in creating quality products regardless of the endless profit line. They wanted to go fly fishing with fly gear they could be proud of.

Some of the antique fly fishing reels lacked in the looks department, but they are still in use today. Antique fishing tackle may need some restoration or repair. Collectors may want to keep the vintage original in their original condition. Some of the brand name collectibles are worth more in memories than money for the seasoned anglers.

Prestige fly fishing reels in mint condition can still be found in attics and treasure chests. Anglers tend to keep their rod reel combos as heirlooms instead of selling them to strangers. Fly fishing is a family sport that bonds anglers with fly fishing gear and memories. Collecting vintage fishing reels is a hobby that is replacing the fly fishing leisure activity that some of the older anglers can still enjoy.

It would be a reel drag if we lost these historical treasures.
