This reel is a classic iconic fly reel, perhaps one of the most collectable. Historically, Edw. Vom Hofe was the nephew of Julius Vom hofe and when he retired, he sold his business to his chief too and die maker, non other than Otto Zwarg. Now you know the genealogy ~~ ...the rest of the story. The Vom hofe fly reels have become legendary and one of the most sought after off all the nickel silver fly reels, and perhaps, copied by many, but never duplicated by any reel maker.
