Just a glimpse of the cover, showing a photo of Ernest Hemingway and a monster tuna that he caught with a reel made by Elwin Knowles. An article about Knowles and his rare reels is in this issue, along with a piece on the Schoenfeld-Gutter Co. reels; Ocean City’s early days; the Clark Brothers and their Slote machines; Ben Wright’s spinning reel report and a tribute to some great collectors who have passed on.
Thanks for your patience as the March Reel News – 68 pages, makes its way to your door. This issue includes the annual member roster, a ballot to vote for new officers, and details and a registration form for the upcoming 2015 ORCA National in Florida. Enjoy!
