The July 2017 REEL NEWS has been published and is in the process of being printed and mailed (or e-mailed) to ORCA members. ORCA’s new President, David Lehmann pens his first Presidential message. Fond tributes were published about the late Dennis McNulty and Honorary Member Albert Munger. Articles on reels in this edition cover a BIG REEL mystery, an original Mitchell instruction book, and the amazing reel collection put together by our youngest member, a wheeling/dealing 12-year-old who is into Pflueger bait casters. Rounding out the issue are great articles on pretty-looking collectible fly reels, closed faced Penn spinning reels, recent auction results, as well as Dr Todd Larson’s: The Tragic Tale of Painkiller’s Automatic Fish Reel.
