A rare Peaker saltwater fly reel, 4 1/4" diameter and set up for LHW. It comes with a spare spool. Only a small number of these reels were made in California in the mid-to-late 1980's, inspired by John Emery's saltwater reels, and this is serial #30. The spool width is approximately 1 1/8". Direct drive with a cork drag reminiscent of those by Fin-Nor and Seamaster. Black anodized throughout with a ported spool that's suitable for palming and on the frame plate we have "Peaker" and "No. 30" engraved as well as the drag adjuster knob. The reel and spool have had backing loaded on it but I don't see any evidence that either has been fished - no nicks, dings, scratches, or signs of corrosion, etc. I am told that this reel is also convertible to RHW (though I have not attempted it myself and don't know how simple or complicated it might be). The reel comes in a non-original neoprene Simms pouch and the spare spool comes in a non-original drawstring pouch. A neat and rare reel here for a saltwater reel collector.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
