Julius Vom Hofe began making reels alongside his father in the 1850’s and reels bearing the “Julius Vom Hofe” mark began production in 1882. Julius was a major innovator in American fishing tackle and JVH reels were branded for many of the leading tackle dealers of the day. Julius Vom Hofe died in 1908 but the company continued to be run by his sons Julius Jr and Alfred up until Julius Jr’s death in 1939. JVH reels were produced in high numbers and wide variety, making them some of the most collectible American fishing reels.
