The Harvey Garrison Library

The Harvey Garrison Library

The ORCA Harvey Garrison Library contains over 1700 catalogs, schematics, and other paper ephemera that pertain to reels and reel collecting dating from 1890 to the present. All of this material has been digitized and is available in PDF format for download. 

You must be a current member good standing  of ORCA to order library materials from ORCA’s Library. ORCA Members in that have set up an account in the ORCA Store can select library items directly from the store library category once they are logged into their store account. Members should go through the shopping cart checkout process to then get a list of download links that will download the PDF files for viewing and saving. ORCA Store Account users that didn’t buy or renew their membership using Paypal with the ORCA online store process may need the assistance of the Webmaster to validate ORCA membership and manually adjust their store account status before they are able to download library files. The Library is updated each month, and many new items are added frequently. 

Use the search and selection tool when you want to find more information on a particular topic or manufacturer.

We are always looking for more information to share with our members, so if you have any reel or fishing tackle catalogs that are not in the library our librarian would like to hear from you. 

To donate any material or to discuss any library topics please contact the Librarian.
