These are a relatively cheap alloy centrepin reel with wooden centre. Don't know much if anything about them.
What is the history behind these reels?
Where were they made, for what kind of fishing and anything else about them age and models. Google doesnt offer much but neither do I know enough key words to include.
Any help appreciated. Thanks

TBH I've never heard of the brand Weirdoh so perhaps like yourself I had a look around the internet but the only item of fishing tackle with a similar name was a salmon lure.
Hope you find the info you want .

Thanks flightliner.

I found online a very similar one to the one I have.

There is a Balison "Star maker" also which I saw online on a Polish or French website selling vintage fishing tackle, which looks alot older, which tells me Balison made more than one model of reel. I suspect is made in England.
