_"You have a very cool reel dating from the 1930s manufactured by Go-Ite of Kokomo, Indiana. It is what collectors term an "Indiana" style casting reel, named after the state in which many variations were developed. It is NOT a fly reel, but an interesting (and surprisingly effective) casting reel. There were two styles of Go-Ite reels; yours is the earlier one. They are quite collectable and sell for around $75-$125 each, depending on condition. To see an incredible array of different Indiana reels, check out Jim Schottenham's incredible website Side-Mount Reels."
