Meek 55

Local guide Sam collects and fishes Meek reels.

This is model 55. It is 3 1/8 diameter and somewhat more than 1 inch wide.

I believe that this is what is called a “leaded” finish.

A latch bar pivots to allow spool removal.

The inscription on the back says “Meek No 55, made by The Norton Mfg Co, Bristol Conn USA”.
