muninoel Or an old Garcia Mitchell reel...for one in "reel" good shape, they can be pricey though, but worth it.

skunkedagain1 Try a old closed face casting reel. We used Zebco 303 on our rods back in the day. Didn't have as nice as rod as that,but they had that same looking seat and trigger. Good luck.

ol'54 Yes I agree would like to keep a Garcia reel on it.

ol'54 The post for ebay, this is exactly what I have. I have a ton of fishing gear from my father around four hundred rods and reels and in this collection he had a Abu Garcia 5500-C3 brand new in the box and it does fit this rod. However I am trying to find a spincaster to fit this not a bait caster.

TthePikester From what I can find the rod you have is a vintage casting rod, you can tell by the finger trigger on the bottom side of the handle. You will need a casting reel to match up with it. Here is one on ebay you can check out to see if it will match up. Would be better to keep it original by using a Garcia reel since it is a vintage piece, kinda like keeping Chevy- Chevy and Ford-Ford!!! Good luck and tight lines!!!

I have from my deceased father this rod which has never been used, in honor of him I would like to get this set up and take it out this spring and summer the only problem is I cannot find a reel to fit it. From What I can find on line is that these were made in the 60's, it is a sweet rod I want to use if anyone can help as far as to what reels fit this I would be greatly appreciated!
