Bogdan Limited Edition "ALTA" Salmon Reel - Model 400


For sale here is a very special and perhaps unique reel made by Stanley Bogdan for a close friend and fishing partner. This reel and others come from William Young's estate. Mr. Young was a close friend and fishing partner of Stanley Bogdan. With this sale comes some provenance paperwork and photo files (to be sent via email) that document their relationship.

The reel is a Model 400 in the standard color combination, different than the limited edition of 10 reels Stanley made for members of the Alta Syndicate. Those were silver anodized and included a number (1 through 10) on the back plate in addition to the same etching of fishermen in a canoe.

Obviously Mr. Young used the reel and used it often! Mechanically it's in excellent condition as one would expect of a Bogdan salmon reel.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to expand your Bogdan collection with a very special reel!

Asking price is $10,000 or best offer.

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.
