Carlton Manufacturing Mfg. Co. Fishing Reels

Carlton Manufacturing Mfg. Co. - Rochester, NY

Harvey Carlton started the Carlton Manufacturing Co. in 1903. He made bait casting reels and fly reels. He received several patents for his bait casting and automatic fly reels. One of his reels had a unique feature. It was a 9 to 1 multiplying gear ratio. Carlton also made the more traditional bait casting reels with 4 to 1 gear ratios. The reels with the Carlton name were only made for about 5 years. The company name was changed to Rochester Reel Co. in 1908.
