"As Mitchell Fishing Reel Collectors, our moral duty is to preserve the History and Integrity of Mitchell Reels and the company who started it all, Carpano & Pons as well as Garcia, Arca, Albatros, Balzer, Milbro and many others who made it happen! If you want to understand this heritage and be part of the continuing legacy, you're at the right place!
This site is dedicated to the millions of men, women and children-at-heart with precious memories of the most beloved fishing reel ever made beginning with The Mitchell 300 Spinning Reel. The positive impact these reels had on our lives by helping to bring families together will live on." Wallace Carney

Our History Page: "The engineering quality, for which Carpano & Pons were famous, and the quantity of the reels they produced has never been surpassed. Group Carpano & Pons went on and built many millions of reels! There has never been a range of any other major item of fishing tackle, be it rods, reels, lines, that has achieved anything like the same quality for a single brand and producer."
