Welham, Barrie - Interview

Barrie Welham is a multi facetted individual. He was a prodigious tournament caster setting many records having been taught by Tommy Edwards, hardy casting tutor of repute. He went on to work for K P Morritt (known too many as Intrepid) before running British Fly reels and founding the Mitchell business in the UK. Barrie tells his potted life history and how he came to use the Garcia name even though there was no formal link to the company in the USA. You can learn a great deal about the history of British reel manufacturing as well as Barrie’s life by listening to this recording. (2011)
