Julius began his reelmaking business in New York in 1857 with his father Frederick, and would later produce reels under his own name starting in 1882. Coming from a family of German immigrants who would make the Vom Hofe name famous among anglers of the day, Julius was a prolific reelmaker. Though overshadowed by his younger brother Edward (who made far fewer reels) Julius's name is still widely and well regarded among classic reel aficianados and they remain among the best bargains out there for collectors.
