At the risk of being way off, I am going to suggest that this is a cheap knock off of a brass fly reel made in some place called Tala (Egypt, Iran or some other place where brassworks and low cost labor still abound). That would explain why a nice looking reel is in a dump. What does the other side look like and under the foot and looking into the spool? Images of the full reel surfaces may reveal more clues.
