Whirlaway Reel & Rod

Several items that will be listed in the near future are from a Newly Acquired Collection from an N.F.L.C.C. Collector in our hometown. We may refer to these items as being from the Tim G. Collection. Over 100 Antique Fishing Rods and Reels, 20 Tackle Boxes, Lures and a lot more will be listed from this longtime Antique Collection. All kinds of new listings will be hitting so make sure to keep an eye out...

Up for consideration is this VINTAGE GREAT LAKES WHIRLAWAY SPINNING REEL WITH GLASS ROD. This auction includes the RARE Whirlaway Reel and the Glass Rod it was attached to when found. This is another great item from Tim's rod and reel collection. The reel is maker marked as follows: Whirlaway GREAT LAKES PRODUCTS, INC. Detroit Mich. PAT. ?299156. A hole is drilled at the beginning of the patent number so we can't be sure of the first number. The Rod is not marked but believed to be the original rod that came with the reel. CONDITION: This reel is going to need some minor repairs! The total length as seen below is aprox. 72". This includes the reel portion and the glass rod. The Whirlaway Reel section alone is aprox. 10" long. Both rod and reel are soiled as seen. The reel is well used and going to need some minor repairs as mentioned. The original screws holding the black section to the chrome section are loose. Someone has tried to repair, even add a screw, and tape. The winner is going to need to make some repairs attaching the black section to the chrome section. The handle spins freely. The reel works but should be checked over and repairs made. This is sold as a working reel needing repairs as mentioned. THE ROD: The Glass Rod is in good used condition and with-out any serious damage. The wraps are slightly frayed as seen. All of the line guides and tip are in fine slightly soiled or aged condition. Each line guide is seen below in a close-up photo. We could not get the two rod pieces apart. The ferrules are stuck together. The rod is just slightly soiled and in good sound condition. The Whirlaway Reel should be considered RARE for any collector! We'll let you be the judge after viewing the detailed photos below and please ask any questions prior to bidding. We describe the items the best we can. The Great Lakes Whirlaway Fishing Reel with Glass Rod is sold "AS IS" as seen below in the detailed photos. We think this would be a great addition for any Antique Fishing Collection. WE THINK THIS IS IN GOOD OR BETTER OVERALL CONDITION AND NEEDING SOME REPAIRS!
