Some of you may know that the Bronson Reel Co. was one of the largest reel makers of their time. Their slogan for years was “Reels Sell By The Thousands”. They made hundreds of different model reels, many of them “trade” reels. These were often identical in every respect to one of their regular models, but re-branded with a different model name for a particular retailer or wholesaler. They were produced for the large catalog stores like Sears and Wards, right down to local tackle shops and hardware stores across the country.
See the “Some Bronson History” section for a brief history of the company, which spanned over 50 years.
