"Originally, I had planned a separate section on modern fly reels. It quickly became apparent, however, that to keep the manuscript to a manageable size and maintain its focus (antique and vintage fly reels), this would have to wait. It has long been argued that Americans have no sense of history. But with respect to fly fishermen, this is changing. Along with the revolution in tackle and a proliferation of new fishing books, there has been a dramatic and accelerated interest in vintage tackle. Whether as part of a generally raised consciousness or as a vehicle for understandi ng the evolution of their sport, fly fishermen want to know more about the history of their tackle. This history is exceedingly complex with many gaps to be filled, and only combined effort and concentrated research can help piece together the complete story. This book is part of a broad beginning. " The Chapters: Evolution of the fishing reel; Early British fishing reels; American fishing reels; Vom Hofe and Meisselbach reels; A time of plenty; Automatic fly reels; Hardy Brothers; Hardy Perfect; Other notable British firms; Fly reel construction; Checks and drags; Miscellaneous fly reels; Notes on collecting....Index. Bibliography. Somewhere around a hundred b/w illustrations-photos and drawings.
