Dame, Stoddard & Kendall Fishing Reels

Hawks & Ogilvy Fishing Reels

Hawks & Ogilvy - New York, NY

Hawks & Ogilvy reels were made for them by other companies. They were a large fishing tackle dealer in New York, NY in the 1870's and 1880's. Thomas E. B. Hawks and Robert Ogilvy were the owners of the business at 300 Broadway. The New York City Directories show them as merchants for fish hooks in 1874 and by 1876 as merchants for fishing tackle. The business did make rods and flies. Their highest quality reel was a German silver reel with an S-shaped handle. It also included the November 26, 1867 patent by Julius vom Hofe. Their 1885 catalog shows that you could purchase the reel with the patent upgrade at an additional cost. The catalog also shows they were selling reels by all the known makers selling patented reels like Malleson, Billinghurst, Orvis and Fowler. Hawks & Ogilvy is considered to be one of the great New York Tackle Dealers.
