AL Walker TR1 Trout Reel


An excellent and hard-to-find Archie L. Walker “Fairie” trout reel. This 2 1/4” x 15/16” 3 oz. reel is the smallest trout reel ever made by either Walker, father or son. This RHW reel was made in 1958, and this RHW reel has what appears to be the model number “225” (the diameter of the reel) on the foot brace. The foot, spool, knurled grease cap and protective rims are aluminum. Two of the shouldered pillars are German silver, as are portions of the “S” shaped handle. This reel has never been mounted on a rod, and the hard rubber side plates and screws do not have a ding or a scratch on them. The grease cap has the earlier “ALW” (Arthur Lawson Walker) stamping. This tiny reel comes in a like-new yellow bag and the earlier black vinyl zippered case.

Shipping Information
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.
Other Terms
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.
