If vintage fly reels from Anson, Fin Nor, Fowler, Hewitt, Meek, Philbrook, Bogdan, Paine Walker, Zwarg and Vom Hofe are your thing, you've come to the right place. Fowler Period, the website of Jim Fowler, long-time fly fisherman and fly reel collector, shows off vintage fly reels and fly fishing photos from trips he and his friends and family have taken over a lifetime.

Look through scores of classic and vintage fly reels in Jim Fowlers' Classic and Vintage Reels Gallery. Travel with him to exotic fly fishing destinations such as the Gaula River in Norway; the Grand Cascapedia; Belize; Sun Valley, Idaho; and more. And if you love classic fly fishing rods, be sure to check out Jim Fowler's Classic Bamboo Fly Rods gallery. Once you're done, be sure to stop by the Guided Fly Fishing page to learn more about how you can join Jim Fowler in person to fish Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Large Mouth Bass.

And, finally, keep in mind that if you own classic or vintage fly reels, gut eye flies, fly cabinets, fly vices, and/or fly rods, contact Jim Fowler as he's always in the market to expand his collection.
