Hardy Perfect 3 1/8″ with agate line guard in box – £ 200.00
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 Duplicated Mark II check. With single handle, correct smooth brass foot, round circular stamped logo and rim mounted tension screw the reel dates from the 1930s. The reel has some wear to its original leaded finish (see photos), but is in very good mechanical condition. The smoked agate line guard has a hairline crack (see photo) that does not affect the reel’s use but is reflected in the price. A great usable reel in this sought after small size, complete with original Hardy card box.
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.
