Hardy St George Fly Reel 3 3/8"

1273

For sale here is a Hardy St. George 3 3/8 inch fly reel with three-screw latch from the 1920's. RHW. Nice leaded finish with the desirable large arbor. All original and in excellent condition throughout, the only drawback being some very light initial scratched into the spool near the three screw latch (you can't see it unless you look at it in a certain light - as mentioned, it is very faint). Unmolested ribbed brass foot and duplicated check. The reel has no significant wobble or end play. Stunning agate line guide with no cracks. The handle spins freely. Tension regulator works as intended and the reel has a nice strong check throughout its range. In addition to the parts stamps, the initials "TP" are stamped on the inside of the frame, indicating Thomas Pattinson, who worked at Hardy from 1920-1930. No bag or case.
