Hello,

Attached are three photos of the yearbook of 1950.
This yearbook gives the list of all French manufacturers of fishing equipment: reels, rods, lines, bait, bait, floats, lures,etc .....
Note that Mitchell is not listed as manufacturer, only CAP, Carpano and Pons, M.O.P.
It can also be seen that the Fraser, French sea reel, had already full bail in 1950.

Also included in this book are the hunting and fishing magazines of foreign countries. Join a picture of the two pages that group together the United States, Great Britain and Holland. Maybe useful to some people from this site.

Christian

More excellent reference material, Christian. Merci.
If my eyes don't deceive me, the Mitchell reel shown is a MK.2 with round AR knob. Presumably we can deduce that this was the current model in 1950?

Rolands.

Hello Rolands,

I do not know if that was the current model in 1950.
On the 1952 document of Dries it is a third model.

Hello Dries,
Thank you for this document I have the same type of book as that of 1950 but for 1952 and without any photograph of Mitchell which is not quoted in the manufacturers
I'll go to your country at the end of October, I think you know why.
Dominique will be with me, as we did in 2003 for Endhoven, tourism on the return probably via Luxembourg.

Best regards,
Christian

Hello Mates,

Rolands, I have to agree with Christian and Wallace. Here is a 1954 advertisement from a sporting goods company in New York. Please note the 2nd Version (Mk.2) Mitchell, the mythical "2 screw" Salt Water Mitchell and the misplaced A/R lever on the CAP. Of additional note they did offer the half bail or full bail Mitchell.

Much advertising in the early years was using primarily artist renditions of the fishing reel (among other items) and many of these "pictures" were used time and again. Even Garcia did it in their catalogs as I have many examples.

Regards,
Chris

Dear Chris,
I don't think we will ever know precisely when one version started or stopped; especially as Mitchell themselves would not have recognised the version system that collectors now use.
Also, there was clearly an overlap of reels : as you have highlighted, the claw and hoop-bails were offered simultaneously for a while.
There is plenty of evidence to suggest that the MK.2 reel was produced long after 1946. I do not feel that sellers would have used in 1954 a picture of a reel that hadn't been produced for 8 years.
I agree with Christian that a consensus on the birth of Mitchell and the early years will never be reached.

Rolands.
