Hardy Perfect (1950’s) 3 5/8″ with white agate lineguard – £ 240.00

Hardy Perfect (1950’s) 3 5/8″ with white agate lineguard


First made in 1890 the Hardy Perfect is, for most, the quintessential fly reel. Beloved of collectors and anglers alike it is the reel upon which Hardy built its fame and went through many iterations. With single handle, correct alloy foot, round circular stamped logo and rim mounted tension screw the reel dates from c. 1950’s. The reel has some wear to its original enamelled finish (please see photos) but is in great mechanical condition, the drum being good and tight. The agate line guard is un-cracked and un-chipped.

The reel will be sent recorded delivery due to value – as always we will try to combine postage on multiple items and refund the excess on receipt of your order.
