SEAMARTIN was the unique invention of Cliff Martin of Lakes Entrance in Victoria. The design principle of the remarkable SEAMARTIN is an amalgam of the side-cast and spinning reels. The spool is fixed forward as with a spinning reel, but revolves to retrieve line like a side-cast reel. The unique oscillating action of the line retrieve hook lays the line on the spool in a cross-weave pattern eliminating bite-in, coil throwing and tangling. It also allows the spool to be filled to capacity without line slip off, ensuring trouble free casting.

A devoted salt water fisherman and self-taught fitter and turner, Cliff Martin patented his reel (Australian Patent No. 242,286) in 1960. The early prototypes were made from whatever scrap materials Cliff could lay his hands on. The Model 1 and Model 2 reels were made in very limited numbers possibly only a couple of each survive.

The Model 3 is the first ‘Production’ version, incorporating some minor refinements, but these are rare too and becoming rarer. This is an early one, essentially hand made by Cliff himself and in great condition.

THEY JUST AIN'T MAKING THESE ANYMORE!

DON'T MISS THIS

YES FOLKS! - SHOCK! - HORROR! - GASP!- Hard to believe I know, but it's true - I'm thinning my extensive collection of eclectia, esoterica, arcana, exoticaand requisite bits. Projects I'm never going to get around to finishing, books I'm never going to read again!

There's thousands of books, magazines, hardware, collectibles - many rare, unique and historical train/railway/railroad, locomotive, steam engine, marine, aviation, automobilia,industrial, engineering and related items - Many Bargains and ALL OF 'EMLOOKING FOR A GOOD HOME! Most of my items are personal items which, for one reason or another, are surplus to my requirements. Maybe it’s a spare, second copy of a book or magazine, or reflects a change in direction. Maybe it was something I bought 'On Spec' and which wasn’t what I needed/wanted/thought it would be.

Most of my items are used: Although usually in Good to Very Good Condition, and I describe any known defects honestly & realistically. Of course there will occasionally be things that slip past - If anything like that happens, please contact me. Good communication can solve most problems before they become one, and I'm happy to work with you.

Do yourself a favour: Watch this space - you won't believe some of the stuff I'm moving so I don't have to move it! About the only thing that I'm not listing is the proverbial 'Kitchen Sink'.............but I do have a spare, and you just never know...............!

US buyers please note: There is a $9.00 "Security Surcharge" imposed by the post office on packages over 500 grams. Yeah, I reckon it's a rip-off too, but we're stuck with it!
