I love sharing information and helping others with the knowledge that I have achieved over the last 45 years. I really enjoy helping kids and young adults. Fishing is the best sport for outdoor fun and adventures. There are many things that go into this sport and taking care of rods and reels become a part of this endeavor. Unfortunately I do not have the finances to achieve this on my own. So I have to ask the fishing community for help to go forward with this program. It don’t have to be nothing more than an old reel you have no use for, but will be used for education and maybe a kids first reel.

Langley fishing reels

The Langley Co. made aluminum aircraft parts during WWII and used that knowledge to make very fine light weight fishing reels from 1948 to 1962 when they were bought by Zebco. Zebco continued to make the 310 and 330 model bait casters and 6 of their spinning reels, which is why they bought them, to get into the spinning market.

Langley’s main selling point was their anti-inertia spool and light weight. They are great reels. They made a ton of 310 reels because they were so popular. The KC is a model marking and there were others, but KC is most common. left hand 310 ,311 & 312. The 310 has the standard 3/4″ anti-inertia spool, while the 311 has a larger 15/16″ one and the 312 is small solid shaft one at about 3/8″. Langleys are great reels to collect. There are many variations 310 A, 510 A, 330, 340, 310 Streamlite, 330 Lurecast, 350 Lakecast, 500 Reelcast, 340 Target (Narrow Spool Tournament Casting Reel); 350 Lakecast; 360 Plugcast (Narrow Spool); 370 Deluxe Lakecast; 380 Castrite.

These are the 500 series reels: 500 Reelcast; 505 Shorty (Narrow Spool); 510 Speedy; 520 Topcast; and 530 Speedcast, 520, 530 in the wrong place. The 530 is Green and the 520 is Red.

List above are a few of the Langley reels.

I like the Langley production reels because of the many different models and designs. They are in most cases an in-expensive reel for any collection. With the box and papers they can sell in the $40.00 to $50.00 dollar range in good condition.

I borrowed some of this information from Fishing Talk. Thank Those for the knowledge  and advice.  if you want to ask a question about a fishing rod or reel this is the site to go to.
