Netherlands-based Ari Hart is one of the more innovative and unusual fly reel designers in the modern era. His designs are a radical departure from the traditional s-style, or Hardy-inspired designs that tend to dominate the classic fly reel world. During the 1980's and mid-1990's he operated out of Holland though he would later sell his reelmaking company to a Danish firm who continued to produce his designs. He would later re-open his reelmaking company briefly in the late 1990's. If you are looking for an Ari Hart fly reel or have one to sell, please contact us.
