Peter G. Giroud was born in New York, NY in 1840. The early Brooklyn City Directories show his occupation as "Watchmaker" in the 1870's. Then in 1888 his occupation is listed as "Model Maker." Giroud was very talented inventor and received over 13 patents associated with mechanical devices. He applied for a patent for a fishing reel patent on October 20, 1888 and received it on June 25, 1889. The reels made from the patent design were solid German silver or German silver with hard rubber end plate inserts.
