Hardy 2 5/8" Perfect Dry Fly Trout Reel 1898:
$686


Rarely seen little Hardy Perfect in the small size 2 5/8" Houghton dry fly reel. The reel has brass bridged rim tension regulator, ivorine handle or possibly the earlier 'material' used, brass foot that has been replaced and measures 80mm in length - This could be replaced with the correct brass foot if required. The reel has rare Rod in Hand logo and Straight line Logos. The reel has four very small cusps to the spool. There are a few very minor line grooves to one pillar and early 1896 check mechanism. The back of the face plate, spool and next to check are stamped '2'.

Further pictures added as requested by some E Bayers -
There are no cracks in the frame, when turned there is a very slight lump that can been felt but this does not restrict the 'wind' at all.
The handle plate is on securely and there is no play when turned. The check is still strong.

Also there is a very small piece of alloy missing on the bridge in photo 7 - This is not a crack and does not go through the bridge.
