Reels & Winchs by Allcock, Dingley, Malloch, Haywood & Bernard
It is known that fishing reels (winches) have been made in England for a long
time. Some of the earliest use of an English reel can be read about in Izaak
Walton's book "The Complete Angler" which was published 1653. The majority of
the early British reels are brass. Reels from companies like Allcock's, Dingley,
Malloch, J. Bernard & Son, Haywood and others are collectable.
