Silver King Fly Fishing Reel was Designed and Made by Jack Crouch, in Melbourne, Australia around 1930. By Bernie Ladd, 2/8/2014.

During November 2013, an ARCA member personally communicated to the Museum at Dunolly Victoria, the need to identify a specific CROUCH stamped reel, which he had found among those that the Museum held. The damaged reel had been recovered from discarded items by J T Crouch & Sons Pty Ltd factory, after its closure in 1968. ARCA subsequently sought advice from me in identifying the reel. After research and examination of the available historical data, my immediate impression was confirmed that indeed among the reels displayed at the Dunolly Museum, is an extremely rare Crouch Reel designed and manufactured, possibly as a prototype that became the production model branded ''The Silver King Reel". On behalf of ARCA my conclusions were further validated by Jack Crouch Jr himself, who has firmly ascertained the reel's origin by announcing decisively that: "My father (Jack Crouch Senior) made these reels." Research shows that The Silver King Reel was exclusively made for J. M. Gillies Pty Ltd, College Cres, Carlton, Victoria, and is now confirmed by Jack Crouch Jr. We at ARCA are proud to maintain the efficacy of our appraisal of the authenticity of collectible reels, in order to preserve their historical context in which they were manufactured and utilised.

Crouch 'Dual Braked' vintage fishing reel recently found.  Crouch reel enthusiast Trevor Brown who is the founder of the “Old School Vintage Fishing Gear and Treasured Pieces” Facebook Group, focused his sharp eye on an unusual early Melbourne Crouch fishing reel, during one of his Crouch hunting endeavours and promptly purchased his find with enthusiasm. The reel had an unusual braking system and Trevor telephoned me seeking my thoughts about his new seemingly unique acquisition.


We made arrangements to meet at my home in the outer Yarra Ranges Eastern Melbourne, on the morning of 17 October 2020. Upon arrival, Trevor was clutching his treasured Crouch reel and when he passed it to me I noticed the reel had an unusual braking system.

The nickel-plated brass side plate was delicately unscrewed and we carefully examined the internal dual braking mechanism. My first observation was the brass screw that activated the secondary brake pad looked to have been professionally made, displaying the workmanship of what one would expect from the instrument maker Jack Crouch Sr, who started fishing reel manufacture in the 1930s. The usual 3-pronged star spring metal was fitted to the back plate which was a standard fitment on the Crouch multiplying reel.

Trevor and I discussed the reel at length and we both agreed that this was a very early reel bearing all the characteristics of Crouch’s workmanship. We also concluded that the reel is indeed a prototype experimental reel produced by Crouch. At this point in time it is not known if this particular prototype had ever reached production stage or whether it was custom-made by order from Jack Crouch Sr.

To date there are several “Dual Braked“ Melbourne Crouch reels known to be in the hands of collectors.

'Dual Braked' Crouch was initially designed for Tournament Casting.

In reflecting on my memorable meeting with Melbourne-based Crouch enthusiast, Trevor Brown, when we examined his “Dual Braked Crouch”, I recalled seeing a similar Dual Braked reel, when I came across one, in 1999, at the Victorian Lakes Entrance Market.  At that time, I had not seen or had any knowledge of a 'Dual Braked' Crouch and foolishly commented to the dealer, who was asking $500.00 for the Crouch, that the secondary brake mechanism was not Crouch factory produced! Hence, I believed that his reel, offered for sale was not in original condition, and therefore it had no collectable interest for me.

In 2005, a Melbourne-based author and ‘Fly Tier’, Mick Hall, emailed me images of his Crouch, seeking information about the unusual ‘Dual Braking’ system. Upon reflection of the Crouch seen at Lakes Entrance, I realised the similarity and commented to Mick:  “I’m not sure if the Dual Brake was Crouch factory produced and I had seen a similar version.” Without personally carefully examining Mick’s reel (something that I should have done with the Crouch seen in 1999 at Lakes Entrance) I simply was not sure of the reel’s originality, although from his images I started to have doubts about my original assessment of the 'Dual Braked' Crouch seen at the Lakes Entrance Market!

It was not until after I met with Trevor Brown in 2020, when we thoroughly examined his ‘Dual Braked’ Crouch’, that I realised the possibility that this unusual reel, could have been produced by Jack Crouch for competition.  I recalled Jack Crouch Jnr, commenting during one of several meetings in 2013, that: “Some reels came with two brakes, that dad made for competition casting.

I remember that we were initially discussing various materials used for the removable side plate for the Melbourne-made Crouch (e.g.) Bronze; Brass; or Aluminium). Then, Jack Junior made this critical comment, which at the time upon hearing it, I made a note, of but did not think much of it at the time.

Recently after reviewing my segment on the Dual Braked Crouch reels, it dawned on me that all three 'Dual Braked' Crouch reels that I had seen (initially at the Lakes Entrance Market; followed by the images of a similar reel sent to me by email from Mick Hall, whom I later met in 2021; Trevor Brown’s reel, and my previous discussions with Jack Crouch Jnr; and together with gathered documented data pointing to the fact that during WWII, as a member of Fairfield Angling Club, Jack Crouch Snr became interested in tournament casting); it dawned on me indeed, that the reel was made for this purpose. I therefore concluded that the ‘Dual Braked' Crouch was purpose-made for tournament casting, by Jack Crouch Snr, around 1940.

There is no factual documentation as to how many Dual Braked Crouch reels were made. To date, there are four Dual Braked Crouch reels known, to be in the hands of collectors and there is a possibility that more Dual Braked reels could be found!

 (C 16)  In the early 1940's Jack Crouch Sr, produced a folding handle model Crouch's, fitted with bronze and brass side plates. The main purpose for using these metals was due to a shortage of Aluminium during the war period. Jack Crouch Sr, also experimented and produced a folding handle model with a side plate made of a 'polymer ' type material. It is unclear, how many of these reels were produced for the retail market, but several have surfaced. The Silver colour 'polymer' can be hard to distinguish because of its similarity in colour to aluminium, and possibly there are still more in existence.

Specifications: Aluminium frame and front side plate; 'polymer' type back side plate; folding handle knob of erinoid; crank-handle of cast alloy (dye cast) nickel plated; internal mechanism typical of early Crouch reels; drum (spool of aluminuim, brass barred; 3 leg spring metal drum brake adjustment. J. T. Crouch Maker Melbourne stamped on the front side plate (crank handle side) -c. 1940. Extremely rare.

Crouch Prototype (Experimental) Fishing Reel
Introduction: This unbranded Crouch reel, featured below, is an intriguing version constructed entirely from mechanical parts sourced from the Crouch factory. Upon careful examination of the specifications, it becomes evident that the measurements align with those of the Melbourne-made Crouch reels. It is worth noting that the foot of the reel is made of brass and nickel-plated, and it is larger in size, equipped with bigger diameter brass screws compared to other Crouch models.
Design Features: One notable design feature is the three-leg spring metal (beryllium copper) drum brake adjustment, which is also larger. It appears that Jack Crouch may have endeavored to enhance its durability. This modification was likely a response to the common issue of breakage in the three-leg spring metal drum brake adjustment mechanism found in other Crouch reels, often resulting from excessive force.
Another intriguing aspect is the knurled removable side plate, which has a larger diameter compared to a standard Crouch reel. This thoughtful design solution addresses a common problem encountered when attempting to remove an over-tightened or seized side plate.

Conclusion: Considering all the modifications implemented in this particular reel, it is reasonable to conclude that this unbranded Crouch reel was most likely an experimental model produced at the Melbourne Crouch factory. These specific modifications indicate a serious attempt to enhance the durability of the reel by strengthening the described components.
Upon reflection, my initial assumption that this reel was a "workshop"-made lacked substantiation. Following discussions with several experienced Crouch collectors, it is now apparent that this unique unbranded Crouch reel was likely a model produced at the Melbourne Crouch factory for experimental purposes. It is plausible that a person with engineering or metal trades skills produced this particular model to improve the durability of the factory-made Crouch reel. (

Welcome to this instalment of ReeLpedia®, where we showcase a remarkable piece of angling history:

the Melbourne Folding Handle Crouch Fishing Reel, meticulously crafted by Jack Crouch circa 1930.

Notably, it bears an elegant inscription—' Evans & Balfour Melbourne'—etched in a graceful cursive script on its Folding Handle sideplate.
What captures the intrigue of this specific reel is the meticulous attention to detail in the inscription: 'Evans & Balfour Melbourne.' A compelling parallel emerges with an Eildon thread line spinning fishing reel that proudly shares the same inscription: 'Evans & Balfour Melbourne.'

Notably, this shared inscription adorns the bodies of both reels, all in an identical cursive script style.

An image of the Eildon and Crouch reels, showing the inscriptions in fine detail, is provided below this written historical information.

The curiosities mount as we delve into the story behind Evans & Balfour, a venerable emporium specializing in sporting equipment and stationed in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. Our curiosity piqued, we engaged in extensive consultations with seasoned reel collectors, collectively unraveling a plausible hypothesis. The enigma of 'Evans & Balfour Melbourne' inscribed upon these two reels appears, most cogently, to serve as a security measure. Placed as prominent pieces within the confines of their retail establishment, these reels might have been carefully etched to thwart unauthorized departures or, perhaps, to dissuade any inclinations towards pilferage while they adorned the store's displays. Reflecting upon the inscription's significance, both on the Crouch reel and the Eildon variant, offers a fascinating intersection of retail sagas and manufacturing heritage. These artifacts become not merely relics but coveted treasures, deserving of fervent enthusiasm from collectors and aficionados alike.
