Some of the participants use very old casting reels that they've fine-tuned to the point where super long-distance casts can be made. Melchior often competes at various casting contests at the Lincoln Park casting pools in Chicago. "I think it would be fantastic if the bass pros would participate in a contest using nothing but old rods and reels from the 1950s or earlier," Melchior said. Human beings are just that, humans, living their lives according to their own bag of ethics. One of the rules would state anglers may not use modern-day sonar or scanning units but would be limited to the old-style flashers, just so they could determine drop-offs and weeds. One would be for live bait use, while the other class would be strictly artificial.
A retro fishing tourney? Dream on
How far are you able to cast with old reels?
I mean the really old round baitcasters. The ones with no drag and no anti-reverse. Have you ever caught anything with one of those?
Depending on the lure, pretty far actually. Some of those reels came out when the original Heddon Spook debuted... 1939. My dad has a Heddon Pal reel on a Heddon Pal rod and that has got to be the awesomest "antique" outfit I've ever used (other than my own Fenwick Fenglass Lunkerstick 2000/Ambassadeur 2500C outfit). I don't know if it's anywhere near as old as the original Spook, but the combination sure handles new ones with ease. I can launch a 3/4 ounce Rattlin' Spook all the way down to the knot tied to the spool. That's about 130 feet or so I think with silk line. The one single jewel bearing in it makes it as smooth as glass during casting and no to mention the pristine condition my dad's kept it in. Have I gotten a fish on it? Just once. A small bass on the same Spook. Burnt the hell out of my thumb on the hookset and while using it to control my drag.
old fishing reel help!!?
i have recently received an old pflueger supreme baitcaster i believe is is very old maybe from the 60's and there is no spole release... so how do you cast it? i put a weight on the end and tried to just cast it but it only traveled about 8 feet and it was a hard cast too.. how do i use it? http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/m/mmeuBhRI 5OjdI_ph4DbPdPQ/140.jpg there is a picture of one very similar i still cant find anything
if it is the one with the odd looking star drag, simply press the button in the center of the drag knob. no drag... no freespool. EDIT: okay. the pic is a big help. that washer arrangement on the handle is in fact a drag of sorts. it will allow fish to pull line while you hold the handle. the drag is contained completely in those washers. there is no freespool. it probably needs a good cleaning. cleaned, it will cast as well as any of the pfluegers and shakespeares of the era. and you are correct in your guess that it is a 60s vintage. the supreme was one of the top reels of the time. my preference was the one with the freespool and star drag system. there were a few different versions made. maybe not as many of yours as the others were made. l'm not too sure of those facts. but while it doesn't put it in to the major collectible market worth hundreds of dollars, you can still put a value on it of between 50 - 75 bucks clean and in good working order. not beat up. from what l can see in your pic, it looks pretty good. your best bet for this reel is to find a rod to match, of the same vintage and quality, keep it as a wall hanger, and take it out to the lake just once in a while to play with it. l like to do this with an old heddon pal combo l have. good find! now keep your eyes open for old "meeks" or other of the kentucky reels made in the late 1800s.
