EVH Salmon Reels – New York, NY

EVH Salmon reels are high quality and incorporated a great drag system to catch these large fish. They were made in the small size 1/0 thru larger size 6/0. The drag was improved over time and seen in EVH patents. EVH salmon reels are made of German silver and hard rubber. The later models used an aluminum spool. Edward vom Hofe made a large line of reels for catching any type of fish.
