Anyone have any information to offer on a 3 1/8" Horton Meek model 55 fly reel? Not too much data available on the internet. Meek was a Kentucky maker of baitcasting and fly reels and his company was later bought by Horton Mfg. of Bristol. Connecticut (later maker of Bristol reels). The Meek reel was sometimes called the "American Uniqua" from its horseshoe spool latch, similar to the Hardy Uniqua. Any additional information would be much appreciated, particularly the approximate age. There is a number stamped on the foot which appears to be a serial number (1549).
