I am a user, buyer, collector of the old Garcia Mitchell spinning reels for Catfish. I love the quality and durability of these old reels. Made in France. I use the old saltwater reels - 302/303, 402/403, 306/307. 386/387. 488/489 for my Flathead fishing. I'm just wondering if anyone else out there in the B.O.C. uses the old Mitchell's for their Cattin' trips?
