The Penn Squidder - Model 140

The Squidder was first introduced by Penn in 1938. They are still available today as "new old stock" in some tackle shops, but Penn no longer makes them. The Squidder features "one screw take apart" and is easily disassembled with no tools for spool changes or maintenance. This real is still popular today with surf fishermen.

It's easy to figure out what the Squidder is so popular the first time you pick one up. The reel is just the right size - not too big around, wide enough to hold plenty of line, feels good on a rod.

The last picture is from Penn Catalog Number 22, which is thought to be from around 1960.

 

A bad day of fishing is much better than a good day of cutting the grass.
