A wonderful description of the “World Famous” gold fishing reel & rod with topaz ornamentation appeared in the 1929 Abbey & Imbrie Fishing Tackle Catalog. It describes a beautifully engraved solid gold reel and matching split bamboo rod with gold reel seat and ferrules. They were also described in an earlier “American Angler” magazine article in 1916. If anyone knows the whereabouts of these fabulous gold reel and rod items, please call or text me at (407)496-7940.
