Table of Contents

The Kentucky Reel is truly one of the great contributions of the Blue Grass state to the wider world. The first widely popular multiplying fishing reels were hand made in Kentucky in the nineteenth century, and their popularity changed fishing forever by ushering in the modern age of baitcasting.

For the first time, the authors offer a concise and easy to read history of not only the origins and development of the Kentucky Reel, but also the early history of baitcasting and bass fishing in Kentucky. Lavishly illustrated and featuring examples of some of the rarest Kentucky Reels, this book is a welcome introduction to an important yet overlooked piece of angling and Kentucky history. Includes biographies and professional photos of reels by: George W. Snyder and sons; J.F. & B.F. Meek; Meek & Milam; B.C. Milam; B.C. Milam & Son; J.W. Hardman; J.L. Sage; T. Dalton; B.F. Meek; B.F. Meek & Sons; B.F. Meek & Sons and Blue Grass Reels; Sylvanus Meek; J. Deally; G.E. Medley; Frank Fullilove; and Geo. W. Gayle & Son.
