This week we have Part II of the history of Alvey Reels.
One of my favorite articles I've written in the past five years dealt with the tackle sold by the J.F. Schmelzer Arms Co. of Kansas City; this raised gear box Schmelzer reel is one of the nicest to come to market in some time.
Want to see a beautiful example of nineteenth century reelcraft? Check out this auction.
Another outstanding early reel is this Meek & Milam Kentucky #3.
I am a sucker for old catalogs, even if the ones I covet usually go for a ton of money. This is a really cool old Swedish Abu catalog that has attracted a lot of attention.
For those interested in getting their very own 1958 Heddon Sonic Mini-Comic Book, check out this auction.
Another astounding Heddon lure is sure to bring some serious coin.
A great Bud Stewart lure in box should find a nice home.
