Frank Perez Fishing Reels

Frank Perez Fishing Reels

Frank Perez - Brooklyn, NY

Frank Perez was born in Cuba in 1879. He made surf casting reels in Brooklyn, NY. His reel design was developed using the concepts he learned from E. Holzmann. Perez reels contain Holzmann features including a screw-off head plate and a thumb operated free-spool lever. The first Perez reels were not marked with his name and closely resemble the Holzmann "Surf King." The transition reels also have spools with stepped ends like a Holzmann reel. The Perez No. 1 is marked and has two additional pillars and smooth spool ends.
