Does anybody remember the “Seascape” overhead fishing reels I believe were manufactured by a father and son who worked from their home on the Gold Coast I am not sure I could be wrong. They were a chrome-plated reel with an aluminum spool and they had a push button or lever behind the drag wheel, which released the spool for casting. There was another reel very similar to the seascape, which came out not long after called the surfmaster. They looked very much the same except they had a lift out lever on the side to engage free spool. I have a couple of seascapes although in below average condition but in working order all the same. I believe they came out in about the late 60’s early 70’s my brother and I purchased about 6 of them over the years and from memory the largest fish caught on them was a 52 lb Spanish mackerel which was caught off the Urangan Pier back in the early 70’s. If anybody could help me by pointing me in the right direction to purchase a couple of these magnificent seascape reels or even the surfmaster reels you would make my day. Thank you, Mossy ???
