Reels & Winch Makers Allcock, Dingley, Malloch, J. Bernard

Reels & Winchs by Allcock, Dingley, Malloch, Haywood & Bernard

It is known that fishing reels (winches) have been made in England for a long time. Some of the earliest use of an English reel can be read about in Izaak Walton's book "The Complete Angler" which was published 1653. The majority of the early British reels are brass. Reels from companies like Allcock's, Dingley, Malloch, J. Bernard & Son, Haywood and others are collectable.
