Big Game, Trolling & Surf Casting Reel Makers - Information & Photos

Below you will find links that will take you to bios and photos of Big Game Reel, Trolling Reel and Surf Casting Reel manufacturers.  Please click on the name of the reel maker to find out more about them and to see pictures of some of the different models of reels that they made.

This is by no means a complete list of salt water reel makers, however, the reels made by the makers listed below tend to have more value.  Sometimes the name stamped on a reel is that of the retailer, I have listed those as well.  If you have any questions or wish to sell your reel please contact us for more help.
