For sale here is a Conroy Brass Trout Reel made and stamped for retailer "A. Clerk & Co. NY". Andrew Clerk and Co. operated retails stores in New York from 1820 to 1875 when they were purchased by Abbey & Imbrie. Most of their brass reels were made by Conroy. Raised Click Box. 2 1/4" diameter. Pronounced offset foot that is entirely full length but a little kinked/bent. Thick half crank fitted with a bulbous bone grasp that is seized on its post. Most of the screw heads are in terrific condition and the reel has a strong sounding click. These reels rarely surface on the market so don't miss this chance to add a very nice example of a very historic and very high quality early American fly reel to your collection.
