I'm new to the group and would just like to say hello! Back in the mid 80's I loved to fish the Eel River in Northern California, so I put together a good steelhead fishing outfit with a Mitchell 300 reel. I remember the sound of the reel and how smooth it was. Now I am starting to collect 300's again since my daughter has taken to fishing. So far I have found a 1961 and 1963 vintage reels. It's good to see there is still plenty of these reels still floating around.

For every fish there is a worm :hat

Hi cactusjack,

Welcome to the Group :sSig_welcome2: ,

In my opinion the Mitchell 300 is the best all-round reel ever made and the early sixties are very nice - congratulations on getting a collection started. Especially with your daughter involved - days on the water with her and a couple of Mitchells will make for great times and priceless memories. If you have any questions, you're in the right place for any help you may need.

Regards,
Chris

For every fish there may be a worm, but for every Mitchell collector there are about 10 reels.........all of which they "gotta have" and all well beyond their allowance $$ :sFun_rofl:

I hear you Chris about "for every collector there are about 10 reels". I now have (4) 300's and a 304 CAP that dates to 1955'. ;)
