The 1915 Avon centrepin reel

This reel is a true all rounder, the traditional aerial. Ideal to compliment a cane rod and Wallis cast, this is my favourite reel from the whole collection, plain in looks but a dream to fish with.

The reel is constructed with 12 spokes and ventilated front rim with 8 large holes. The reel is fitted with a brass button ‘V’ check mechanism and ivory handles. The reel is finished in slate grey anodize with brass and solid nickel silver fittings.


The 1915 Avon centre pin is built to the following specifications and variations:

REEL SIZE: 4″ & 4 1/4″ diameter
SPOOL WIDTH: 7/8″ & 1 1/8″
RATCHET: Button check
HAND: Left hand wind (Right hand by request)

All reels are supplied with a heavy cotton embroidered draw cord pouch and dropper bottle of Chris Lythe reel oil.


The 1915 Avon centre pin is not a limited edition reel and is still in production by Chris Lythe Centre Pins.

As of February 2021, my order books are full and therefore closed for a short period of time. Once current orders are full-filled, I look forward to taking orders again, hopefully in Autumn 2021.
