Default Regal Engineering Fly Reel

Hi all,

I have a fly reel manufactured by Regal Engineering of Orange, MA. It has the Regal Engineering emblem on the side, and is engraved with the serial # 0261. The paperwork says anti reverse, fresh or saltwater big game reel. I cannot seem to find any information about the reel, i.e., its value, popularity, quality, etc. The Regal Engineering website does not even list a reel as one of their products. Does anyone have any information on this?

Thanks in advance.

I could not find anything. I would just call up regal and ask them if they made some but just stopped. How old is the reel if it is old it may be discontinued.

Hi SoNH,

Here is contact information for Regal Engineering. I would send them a fax with the serial number of the reel and ask for information. I don't know if they are still in business.

Why don't you post a front and back picture of your reel?

Hi SoNH,

Bad news I think. Their phone and fax number has been disconnected.

I am not sure how to upload images from my computer to the forum. If someone could explain it to me, I will gladly post the photos. (the reel is different from the one in the link sent by Jocelin)
The info I have received so far (not from Regal, mind you) is that the reel was manufactured originally along with the fly tying vise, but there was a change in ownership of the company some years ago, and the company founder took the patent rights to the reel with him when he left. It might be a sore subject, and that would explain why there is no mention of the reel on the website. I am not sure of the validity of this info, but is sounds reasonable.
