Here’s a preview of the March 2014 issue of The Reel News.
Richard Lodge has put together another outstanding issue of feature articles that includes Thumb Reels by Bill Stuart; Tournament Reels by Todd E.A. Larson; Tenacity, Networking and Some Luck – A Rare Zebco, by Dick Braun; Copies and Faces by Butch Carey. There are also the regular columns: Penn Reels – the Long Beach by Michael Cacioppo; Spinning Lines and the Spinning Reel Auction Report by Ben Wright, River Reflections by Bob Miller along with ads from our generous supporters, ORCA News – ORCA Honored by IGFA; ORCA Financial and Donor Program Reports; President and Editor’s Messages. The March issue is even larger because it also includes the ever useful annual member roster.
Last but not least is a ballot for the ORCA Board of Directors election. Members need to have their ballots postmarked no later than May 15, 2014 so please get it out and vote!
As hard as Richard works to bring ORCA members a quality news magazine such as The Reel News, members need to support ORCA by sending in articles. If you are passionate about a favorite reel, type of reel or manufacturer and want to see more of it in the Reel News, you may be the very person knowledgeable enough to write about it! Your article may motivate others to add to your information and spur more articles on your favorite reel so get the ball rolling.
Remember that you can only receive these wonderfully informative news magazines about collectible old reels if you are a member of ORCA. Back issues are also available to members through the ORCA Store. For a quick listing of previous issues and to purchase, see Back Issues of the Reel News for an index of specific articles.
