Alcedo Fishing Reel Schematics
Fishing reel schematics for Alcedo spinning reels.
“An Italian fishing reel company, the Micron was first brought to America around 1953, and holds a place in fishing tackle history, as it was the first true ultra-light spinning reel. It was an expensive reel–selling for $35 in 1954–and extremely durable. It has developed a cult-like following. Even today, noted anglers like Joe Robinson and Dave Whitlock remove the bails from vintage Microns and use them for what is sometimes called “extreme ultra-light” fishing, with 2 pound test line and 1/64-ounce lures. Today those same reels “if found” sell for $125-$225.
