    I've never heard of a Fortescue reel. O K I'll bite, who makes a Fortescue reel?

    Ocean City Mfg. Co.
    The Ocean City Manufacturing Company was incorporated in Philadelphia, PA in 1923. The company was a major manufacturer of fishing reels for the next 40 years or so. They were known for quality factory salt water reels and inexpensive baitcasting and fly reels. Their reels are of moderate interest to collectors. They apparently purchased many reel designs from the A. F. Meisselbach Mfg. Co., when the Newark, NJ factory closed and produced them under the Hermos label.




    Fortescue. This attractive German Silver surf casting reel was produced in many different materials and for several retailers under different names. It was a nicely made reel that came out in 1925s and lasted until World War II. Some of the variations are shown in the next photo.





    Fortescue Variations. From bottom left: Crown Quality Belmar; Abbey & Imbrie Tide Runner; Sea Girt; A & I Sea Bright; and the original Fortescue. Other variations not pictured include: Congress Anglesea, Folsom, Wilson Sea Girt, and probably others.

    I pray that I may live to fish.......
    Until my dying day.
    And when it comes to my last cast,
    I then most humbly pray:
    When in the Lord's great landing net
    And peacefully asleep
    That in His mercy I be judged
    Big enough to keep.
