Dear Ron
The story behind the goat ist he name of the founder of DAM:
His name was Fritz Ziegenspeck!
And Ziege / Ziegen means goat / goats in English and so he has choosen this
animal as a kind of company symbol in the beginning.
Moreover nowadays our lures are still named after the initials of Mr. Fritz
Ziegenspeck: FZ or Effzett!
Then, a few years after World War II. the goat logo disappeared more and
more, but it´s spirit is still alive!
Best regards,

Sven

Anfrage von Ron McAlpin hat folgende Angaben:
I've had a couple of brass DAM fly reels, Effzett 495 from between the wars - I can't believe I never photographed them, though.

here's a good history site:
http://home.hetnet.nl/~rolandl/

here is a Quick Standard 250 (1953-54)

(weak bail spring on this reel)
btw, if you run across an SW68 - the prewar version of this reel - only 600 reels were made and they're quite valuable

Certainly my favorite, with striking good looks, the Quick Junior 240, 1956ish

(there is a green Junior out there that looks good, too)

and the big Finessa 280, 1958

I was actually picking these up along the way for a Quick collector, who ended up backing out for health reasons. They're available for a pretty good deal if anyone is interested.

Jeff, the Finessa is reversible, but is a Big reel - big enough for striper fishing. (it also matches the spare spool in the goat can)

I have one other cool spinning reel to show but, otherwise, this endeth the spinning reel history lessons.
I'm hoping we can get some other threads kicking in, though.

The goat lives! Long live the goat! You should open up a rod and reel museum down there in Texas Ron! Thanks for the always interesting photos and background on these wonderful & unique reels.

Mike
