Vintage & Antique Fishing Reels

Antique and vintage fishing reels such as the Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 5000, Pflueger Templar, Vom Hofe 550, and classic fishing reels from Penn and Shakespeare on sale.

The oldest fishing reels were essentially just spools on which the fishing line could be stored. That all changed in the 1800's, with the development of high quality multiplier reels, drag mechanisms, and fixed spool spinning reels. Collectors seeking vintage Kentucky reels, New York reels by Ocean City, and early spinners can find all their favorites here, with a fresh selection of antique fishing reels daily.
