Australian Reel Collectors Association (ARCA 2012-2021) Mission Statement, For quite sometime antique reel enthusiasts, based in Melbourne, were sharing their knowledge and passion of reel collecting in their regular bi-monthly meetings, which were held in various members’ homes. The usefulness and regularity of these meetings led me to the idea of establishing the Australian Reel Collectors Association (ARCA). My fellow members welcomed the idea and in early 2012, ARCA was founded.The aim of ARCA is: to bring the antique and vintage fishing enthusiasts together; to share their common interest and passion; and to preserve the historic and technical information regarding various collectable items. Such information often refers to: the origins of the conceptual design of a collectable fishing item; its development and functional evolution; its inventors and manufacturers; and the prevailing circumstances that led to the item's conceptualization and production, from the earliest times through to the present. ARCA, a non-profit association, is about sharing the enthusiasm in the present, and preserving history for the future generations. B. Ladd, 2012 Founder ARCA..

The Inaugural Meeting of Australian Reel Collectors Association also known as ARCA was held in Melbourne 4th August 2013.
