Are there any collectors of reels by J Flint? My late dad was a bit of a magpie and I have inherited some old brass reels but they are mostly unbranded apart from a 4 inch example which is marked J Flint maker Dublin. Not a name that I have heard of.

Hi Steve!
I have a few Flint bits and bobs, including a four inch salmon winch, perhaps similar to yours. I know that John Flint was primarily a manufacturer of flints for flintlock guns, which makes me wonder whether his name is real! He worked out of 17, Essex Quay in Dublin, running along the south bank of the Liffey.
