Re: Edward Vom Hofe # 355 reel?
We have a member who has a few Vom Hofe reels. He may be able to give you some info about the reel. I never had one and can be of no help. He will see this thread when he logs on or I will contact him and point him to it. I would guess the 335 is the production number not the model of the reel. If it is 3" in diameter that may explain the '3'. It looks like one of the early 1900's trout models but without the dimensions I can't guess farther.
