Bogdan Model 200M Salmon Reel A&F


A nice Bogdan 200M salmon reel sold through Abercrombie and Fitch. Hard to find LHW. 3 3/4" diameter with a 1 1/16" spool width. Weighs 12.1 ounces on my scale. Good bordering on excellent used condition, with some minor rim rash on the frame edges, brassing on the drag adjuster, some minor marks on the sideplates, and mounting marks on the foot. All are fairly minor though with nothing especially significant. There are also some scratches to the very interior part of the spool on the drum, though they are cosmetic only. Consistent with this model the frame, spool, and side plates are gold, while the handle, foot, poacher's knob, oil cap, and drag adjuster are black. "AF 200 M" is stamped into the underside of the foot while the serial number "64-19" is stamped on the side as was common with these A&F models. Very strong double brake drag that the Bogdan name is known for, and this one has delrin brake pads not the earlier micarta ones. No bag. With the popularity (and price) of larger spey size Bogdans growing rapidly over the past few years, these gold models offer a nice chance to fish one on your spey set up at a reasonable price.
