Fishing reel facts

Some sportsmen do not consider reels necessary but this is because they have either never used them, or never had a good article. American made reels are now considered the best in the market, particularly for taking large fish. The smaller English reel will do very well for trout fishing. There are two kinds: the plain reel, and the multiplying reel. Some prefer the former; but the multiplying reel saves a good deal of time, and is easily worked when you get accustomed to it. Reels are made of brass, and of German silver. Either article is as good as the other.
