Peter Malloch began making side mount casting reels in the mid-1880s in Perth Scotland. Although Malloch was best known for his side mount casting reels, he also made some great fly fishing reels. One such reel was the "Sun & Planets" fly reel which was an anti-reverse reel with planetary gearing. Although Malloch died in 1921 the company has continued on in the tackle business in one form or another and is still in business today.
