G.W. GAYLE & SON – Frankfort, Ky.

George Gayle started making high quality casting reels in the mid-1880s in Frankfort Kentucky with his son Clarence. Gayle's reels were made of brass or German silver, however, a few examples have been found made of hard rubber.  Gayle reels are considered very collectible today.  George Gayle died in 1896 but his son Clarence continued to build reels up until the beginning of WWII.
