New York State has turned out quite a few side-mount reels that as yet have not been ID'd. I am always on the lookout for any information on these, and welcome any leads to who produced these fine reels. At least three on this page were made by the same maker, or so I believe. Advertisements were scarce - not many people stopping by the local news stand to pick up the latest issue of Rod-n-Reel back in the 1870's to 1880's!
I'm always interested in adding reels to my collection. If you have a reel you'd like to discuss, trade or sell please feel free to e-mail me at Jim@sidemountreels.com
