Classic or Vintage Canadian Made Fly Reels?

Hello everyone,

I've been searching the internet, and having some difficulty finding any answers. I'm sure it's opperator error, but can anyone give me a hand here?

I'm looking for names of classic or vintage Canadian made fly reels. I'm not ready to make any purchases yet but would like to start researching a reel to go along with a light weight switch that I'm trying to convince my wife I need.

Any help would be greatly appreicated.

Do you want a modern reel with a classic look or only old stuff?

For the former, look at Stamp River Reels. His trout reel is good for short rods.

For the latter, look at Thomas Cemm's stuff.

I really like Islander reels but there is nothing classic about them in my mind.

Find yourself a nice old Thomas Cemm, Vancouver Bench made reels, mostly fashioned after Hardy reels. Vintage and Canadian... and they do come up for sale every once in a while too.

I'm hoping to find some older stuff. Something with a bit of history and experience.

I've had a look at the Islander Reels, and they are nice no doubt about it.

Thanks everyeone for the quick responses.

Where do you feel, besides these forums, are good places to look for these types of reels?

I wish I had $1500 for a reel like that! Maybe I should go buy some lottery tickets.
