AL Walker Model 100 Salmon Reel 2/0


A very scarce AL Walker Model 100 salmon reel in 2/0 size, 3 3/8" diameter and set up for RHW. Excellent used condition free of any major defects with very minor cosmetic wear throughout. The frame, spool, sideplates, and so forth are in terrific shape. Mechanically the reel is great, with a nice smooth click and a strong drag when adjusted to the upper settings. Single action retrieve. The serial number "652" is stamped into the side of the foot crossbar, and the model "100" and size "2/0" on the underside. The reel packs into an excellent block leather case which appears to be original (it has the initials "GMM" pressed into the top of the lid). A very nice example of this model!

This reel comes from the collection of Dr. Earl Fleegler, a passionate angler and well-known collector in the fly fishing community as well as a renowned hand surgeon. Dr. Fleegler was close friends with a number of angling luminaries including Tom Maxwell, Vince Marinaro, and Stan Bogdan (among others) and devoted considerable effort to collecting some of the finest tackle available from masters of the craft.
