    I have a fly reel from the early 1940′s Its stamped Circle (a circle with a fish in the middle) any ideas? Thanks Guste. Copper I think.

    My grandson was given a reel branded STORM model TSSCK-3 which will no longer “take-up the line. I do not find this brand in your listing nor can I find its maker to learn how to fix it I hate to take it apart without some manufacturer info. Can you help

  6. @Ralph, the company you are referring to is more well known for lures. You can see their website at StormLures.com. It looks like they are being offered through their “sister” company, Rapala, here. I’m guessing it was a way for them to try to package their lures as a marketing ploy. Anyone else with information on this feel free to chime in!
