In the late sixties Mitchell started making a classic single action fly reel for "beginners and purest" in addition to their automatic fly reels called the Mitchell 756. The beautiful reel shown comes from the collection our Mitchell Mate Noni Knight with our appreciation! I must note this reel was purchased in the UK and was originally sold through Garcia Tackle, UK by Barrie Welham, a world champion fly caster. In the flyer called "Bottle Fish Award" Noni says it states:

 

"If you catch a brown trout of 4 and 1/2 lbs., a sea-trout of 8 lbs. or a salmon of 25 lbs. (or over) on an artificial fly while using a Garcia reel or line then you are eligible for a presentation bottle of Findlater's famous DRY FLY sherry (applies only to fish caught in the U.K.)."

 

Good one Mr. Welham Wink

 

I've included a comparison chart from a 1977 ad for more details on the 700/750 series reels. For a lot more information please visit our Vintage Advertisment GalleryVintage Advertisment Gallery and our Schematics GallerySchematics Gallery where you'll find images from several countries.
