Bill Ballan 2 5/8" Fly Reel


For sale here is a Bill Ballan 2 5/8" fly reel with a nicely engraved fly on the backplate. The reel is in excellent condition. I would classify it as near mint if it weren't for the front plate having a mottled black finish unlike the back plate that has a smooth anodized finish. Purely cosmetic. The reel has a right hand retrieve bias. The clicker is smooth and audibly it sounds very pleasing. The spool is 3/4" wide. The reel weighs 4.35 oz. A nice 4wt trout reel that would pair beautifully with a classic bamboo rod. Includes a felt-lined walnut presentation reel case.

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.
