The September 2017 REEL NEWS has been published and is in the process of being printed and mailed (or e-mailed) to ORCA members. The Reel News Editor, Richard Lodge and ORCA President David Lehmann, each makes his case that the National Convention at Table Rock Lake in Branson, MO will be one for the ages and that you should attend! Steve Vernon describes some of the wildest and most intricate automatic fishing reels ever designed– one of which came complete with a bicycle-style bell—all from the land of Meek and Milam! Are advertised-but- never-seen tournament reels extremely rare or never produced? Colby Sorrells tackles this dilemma. And then there’s the high-performance fishing reel designed by a high-performance car manufacturer. Are you interested in fly reels manufactured north of the U.S. border? Paul Manuel and Ken Kerr have you covered. There are also show and auction reports and a nice bit of satire from Phil and Marilyn White.
See you in Branson!
