fake collectable fly reels

Post by fishaholiclures » Sun Oct 17, 2010 11:54 am

Just doing the usual daily troll through the auction listings and saw yet another " Collectible Brass fishing reel" listing. Just be aware that there are several of these identical reels being made, the only difference being the 'Brand'

One of the fly sites has a standing notice "brass reproduction flyreel made in India. This is one of many reproduction reels available on the market.
They can also include the markings "Mitchell London" "ABBU ZEIS MADE IN SWITZERLAND" "Dax Lyon Paris" and "Horton USA"

BE AWARE NOT ALARMED
