Classic A. Pettengill No.3 Fully Ventilated Fly Fishing Reel Nickel Pltd Brass For Sale
This reel is in very good cosmetic condition, light loss of the nickel plating in spots. I have not had a Pettengill before, so I cannot verify whether or not the nut and bolt holding the spool are original to the reel. I can confirm that the click mechanism under the tail plate is missing. This is a narrow spool trout reel 3" in diameter. The spool is 1/2" in diameter. The spool is stamped "A. PETTENGILL" just over the winding knob and "3" on the opposite end. This reel is fully ventilated. An uncommon reel, as you all know.
