    Default Antique Large Arbor Reel

    For those who thought that Large Arbor reels were a new design here is a pre-World War 1 reel. The back plate is mahogany.

    Frank,
    Is this one of your reels? Who exactly is the manufacturer?
    Thanks,
    Terry

    Hi Terry,

    I wish it was mine. It set a new record for fly reels. Here is all I know about it. There has been similar reels made as late as 1990. Here is a link to some of the Aerial reels.
