Hardy Perfect 3 3/8″ with smoked agate line guard in box – £ 250.00
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. This reel is from the Perfect’s classic alloy period and has a Mark II check. With single handle, correct alloy foot, and rim mounted tension screw the reel dates from the 1950’s. The reel comes in its original labelled cream Hardy box. The smoked agate line guard is un-cracked and un-chipped and the reel retains most (c.90% – see photos) of its original finish – worn in the usual places.
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.
