The "Imperial Montague" reel was built by R. R. Taylor & Co. of Sydney, Australia. Taylor's well-made reels have a 6 1/2 inch diameter and a star style drag. Unlike many pre-World War II, Australian big game reels the "Imperial Montague" was built to be fished over the rod.
Taylor marked his reels "Non-corrosive" and some were sold through "Cowles & Dunn", a large sport fishing outfitter in Australia. Reels sold through "Cowles & Dunn" were marked with their name as well as the "Imperial Montague" name.
