A very nice Bogdan 300 Salmon reel in rare LHW configuration. It doesn't get any better than this for spey fishing on larger salmon rivers. This is the second largest model in the Bogdan lineup, with a 3.75" diameter and 1.375" spool width. Built to fish #10 lines it holds 200 yards of 20 lb backing and weighs 12.5 ounces. This one is in good used condition with some rim rash in the "resting place" on the frame edges and a few other minor scratches here and there from normal riverside use. No major issues and pretty clean overall. The original owner's initials "R.L.T" have been professionally engraved on the front plate in small block letters. "R.L.T" is for Princess Raimonda Lanza di Trabia, a Bogdan fan whose picture graces the pages of Graydon Hilyard's definitive book on the Bogdans, and whose father was Raimondo Lanza di Trabia, Sicilian nobleman and sportsman. Clear anodized silver frame with black sideplates, and a silver handle, foot, oil port over, drag adjustment housing, poacher's knob and Bogdan nameplate. This reel has the renowned Bogdan double brake drag design that will stop any salmon you are lucky enough to get into, as well as a 2:1 multiplier retrieve. These 300 models are rare enough but LHW is even rarer. Don't let this one get away. Comes in the standard Bogdan suede pouch.
