Hal Cooper (Instrument maker) started his business Halco with £5, a 2 and a half horse power motorbike and a small hercus lathe in 1950. He made chrome plated spliced lurers. Halco successfully applied for a patent in 1954. Between 1950 and 1960, a few hundred reels were made. He also produced a small thread-line reel in limited numbers.
