The very popular reel collector website Oldreels.com was acquired by ORCA from author and long time ORCA member, Phil White. Phil served as Editor of The Reel News from 1996-2005 and supervised its growth from a 16 page quarterly newsletter to a 36 page magazine published 6 times a year. He developed the ORCA website in 1997 and maintained it until 2002. Phil has written 4 books and numerous articles on a wide variety of reels and their manufacturing history. Phil lives in Nampa, Idaho. This website is a culmination of his many years of research and a major contribution to the ORCA Reel Research Site. ORCA is indebted to Phil for this gift and his dedication to the club and our mission.
During the process of facilitating the domain transfer and hosting the site on ORCA servers, the site is available intact as it was last seen, here:
