View Full Version : very old Reel
sorting through boxes in my garage, i came across this old reel i'd forgotten i had, the engraving says.....G. Little & Co Makers to H.R.H Prince of Wales 15 Fetter Lane London
interesting small reel, anyone know anything about them ?
can't see a picture on my phone. Is it brass?
Great find, I don't know anything about them but it's a nice old reel and probably worth getting a value on.
googling about they seemed to producing fishing gear approx 1900 and some items from them are fetching around £100 - 250 in auctions such as rods gaffs etc..
ps its very nice
this looks like it dont know the actual sale price though
thanks Spiritwalker, good link, mine is much smaller ( :) ) diameter is 55mm ( 2 inches or so ) looks like that though.
hi one of the magazines FLYFISHING & FLY TYING have a very knowledgeable writer CHRIS SANDFORD who will identify and give you some idea of history and value of your reel.
you can start your enquiry on their web site www. flyfishing and fly tying .co.uk they have a forum and methods of contacting their staff for advice. good luck i would be interested in the result regards corby
uthanks for that, i'll check it out later.
