REEL #1  1937

left side of reel

    This is it folks, the first C.A.P  (or is it? Please see the link to Christian Lhermitte's "Right Foot" reel below.)

            Right side of reel           Front of reel

            Under spool           Bail Mechanism

        Please check out the reel shown on the following link which is apparently a "right foot" C.A.P reel and which predates the common notion of the first "oblique foot" C.A.P reel like mine:   Christian Lhermitte's "right foot" reel 

         I would also suggest you visit Christian's website from the links page.
