Winchester Fishing Reels

Winchester Fishing Reels

Winchester Fishing Tackle - New Haven, CT

Winchester purchased the Hendryx Corporation and all its tooling and rights in 1921 and made a lot of the fishing reels seen in the Hendryx catalogs. Like Hendryx, most Winchester fishing reels were inexpensive and cheaply made. However, Winchester did also make some high quality German silver reels. Most Winchester reels can be found with the "Winchester" name stamped on the front plate. Some Winchester reels can be found without a name on them. Others have been found with "Hendryx" or "Armax" stamped on them.
