Gayle Reels

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find it interesting and informative. This site is dedicated to Clarence Gayle and the his ability with a third grade education to have an profound influence on the Kentucky reel making industry and the the world in general with his self taught engineering skills.

This is our attempt to preserve our heritage, legacy and history for our family and friends. We further dedicate it to our father, Joe A. Gayle Sr., who was Clarence’s grandson and remembering many of the the stories he shared about his “Paw”
