Record and ABU Accessories
My primary interest is in what was actually provided with the reel when first sold. This may be due to my practical approach, like actually getting down to using the reels. Tool and spools so to speak! I have to admit though, what my accessories research has uncovered is a plethora of common publicity items as well as some very rare and one -off items presented to long time ABU employees after many years of diligent service.
This Garcia Record recently bought on E-bay by my friend Mike Elsworth was produced by Garcia in 1962 for the enjoyment of ABU employees worldwide. He has been able to have the analog recordings dubbed to mp3 files for all to enjoy. I think all will agree it is of interest but we won't be rushing out to buy copies for our listening pleasure. it is shared here to further demonstrate the selflessness of the company and world wide spread of fishing Tackle manufacturers.
