THOMPSON

Little is known about the Thompson reel or its maker.  What we do know is that the reel is a roughly made knock-off of the 1936 first model Fin-Nor "Big Drum" reel built by Fred Grieten in Miami, Florida.

Complete with a second handle and a narrow spool this reel has been found with, and without, Thompson's name stamped on the side-plate.
