This is the current link to the MRM Forum: https://www.mitchellreelmuseum.com/forum/
Aside from reels, the Forum also has a rods section, Conolon & Narmco Rods Discussion:https://www.mitchellreelmuseum.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=90&sid=a0921a9351d84550863fd1f86a634b13
However, the rods section does not have much participation.
You can read text without registering, but registration is required to be able to see the vast majority of images (uploaded to the site, not an external image host).
Hi John. Bummer. looks like the rod section is gone
