A truly unique piece of Canadiana…
This stunning fishing reel features a circular depiction of salmon and roe of the Pacific Northwest hand-carved using traditional tools by renowned Kwagiulth artist and master carver Jason Henry Hunt.
Titled Circle of Life, this beautiful First Nations design has been selected to celebrate the 90th Year Anniversary for PEETZ Outdoors. A very limited release of 90 Circle of Life hand carved reels have been commissioned and will be available for PEETZ fans and art collectors during 2015.
DID YOU KNOW – Each year, PEETZ also commissions six “Artist’s Proofs” in addition to the 90 limited editions. These reels are not available for sale – instead they are reserved to support the fundraising efforts of organizations focused on salmon conservation and habitat rehabilitation. PEETZ is pleased to report that the first two Orca, Salmon & Moon Artist Proof Reels were donated to the Pacific Salmon Foundation for the 2016 West Coast Resorts’ Salmon Masters Dinner & Auction. The reels sold at auction for $4500 each.
