Vom Hofe, Edward, 2/0, Model 423 Salmon Fly Reel:
1. vom Hofe, Edward, 2/0, model 423 salmon fly reel. This 3 1/2” x 1 5/8” reel is the single action Restigouche model, with the ‘02 stamping on the grease cap. This un-polished RHW reel has the on/off click on the front plate, which works as it should, and the seven-point drag setting that is strong and quite fishable. The foot has not been shortened nor filed, and there are no cracks in the hard rubber plates. This is one of the few vom Hofe reels in this size that I have seen that has the nickel silver rims that wrap around to the spool edges for more protection. It has an aluminum spool and foot, and the double set of roller pillars designed for “rings’ up” fishing. Everything on this reel is original, and screw heads that, save for one, appear untouched.
