Thank You, Michael ó

Because of your integrity and historical respect for these early and rare examples ó the mantle has been passed to you to preserve them, for now.

Good job & appreciate the photos!

Best,

Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. Itís not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or havenít) accomplishedóit comes from within. But itís easy to forget that our worth isnít determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.

In life, be flexible, willing to listen to others, willing to change your mind based on your good judgement -- that is how progress is made, and new horizons are discovered.  When the winds of change blow -- A flexible limb moves and thrives -- a stiff and stubborn limb just snaps.

Great keepsakes, Mike. Ray's knowledge, sense of humor and friendship is sorely missed! That's a really cool experimental prototype colored 716!

Thank you all for the great feedback. Here is a little of the documentation of the tan---Model 716 in Ben Wrights Spinning Reel Reference and Value Guide on page 309, The late Mr. Wright mentions this particular reel.

I also include the Auction Front Page and item #37, which is my tan 716.

Thanks again for the comments. These kind of reels make the hobby more than simply amassing a bunch of reels.

So nice to see more people are collecting these old classics. I built a small 4x7 room in my garage. Loaded it with shelves. Put in a small desk to work. Itís my sanctuary. Planning on building a room off the back of the garage so I can expand and have room to work on rods too. These pics are from a few months ago. Iíve added quite a few since. Last count was 265 in this room alone. Must be over 300 by now. Also love collecting and using old fiberglass rods. Honey lamis, Shakespeare, Garcia conolon. Love em!!

Looked red this morning before coffee, haha. Thanks
Build an extra room to live in, at the rate you're going you'll need the house to keep your reels.
Beautiful, thanks for posting
