Leaver's Bait Casting Fishing Reel, Chicago

Leaver's Bait Casting Fishing Reel, Chicago, IL

Albert & William Leaver - Chicago, IL

Albert and William Leaver received two patents for their fishing reel design. In the 1901 Chicago City Directory, Albert's occupation was listed as Tool and Die Maker and William's as a Machinist. So they both had the skills and experience to invent and make this wonderful reel.
