Mother of all Reels...!

Post by Marrakai » Sun Apr 01, 2012 4:05 pm

Had this fishing reel for a while now, trying to decide whether or not it is worthy of a post here.
My mate Marty found it at a garage sale, and later used it to bribe me into some nefarious activity or other, now best forgotten.
In the last photo, you will see how much he actually paid for it!!

The reel in question is a professional shark-fishing outfit designed to be mounted on the rail of a largish vessel, and although old enough to be described as 'vintage' it would still be quite at home anywhere amongst the northern fleet today.

Definitely the largest fishing reel I will ever own!

I never seem to have the time to cruise the garage-sales on a Saturday morning, no doubt I have missed a fair number of interesting items suitable for the collection.
Meanwhile, I now need to find a display-cabinet capable of accommodating this monster! ImageImage
