Read about the history of Mitchell Fishing Reels

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." Barrie Welham, former CEO and owner, Garcia Tackle Ltd, UK
