Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

Their repertory consists of old-time and bluegrass songs and fiddle tunes learned from the many older Kentucky musicians they have known over the years as well as newer original songs that reflect on life in the region today. Along with the songs and tunes, Kentucky Wild Horse audiences are treated to stories of the wise and colorful characters whose music inspired the band.
