    I posted the pictures of the two Great Lakes reels, they were made in Michigan. I bought in 1984 at a action. They are a spinner reel all enclosed. I have used them for pond fishing now they hang in my garage.

    A grandfather had a couple of those when I was a kid. Even fished with them some. Sure were ugly!
