Reel Research

Reel Research

The following websites are resources made available by ORCA to collectors or others seeking information about antique reels. These were created by the ORCA members noted and generously donated to the Old Reel Collectors Association. Some of the information contained in these websites has been published in the ORCA Reel News, but, as content is continuously added to only through the collaboration and generosity of many collectors, this may be the only place that you will find this information.

ORCA is always looking to expand the knowledge of antique reels and the information in these sites. If you have information that you would like to have considered for addition to these sites, please contact the respective administrator for each website. ORCA also welcomes donations for the maintenance of these websites and depends on your generosity to continue our mission of preserving and expanding the knowledge of antique fishing reels and their makers.
