Dingley Fly Reel 2 3/4" - Telephone Latch - Westley Richards


For sale here is a scarce Dingley fly reel with telephone latch, made for Westley Richards - 2 3/4" diameter. The frame has an area that's been dinged up a bit but this area is solid with no surrounding cracks whatsoever. Foot is full length at 2.3" and unfiled but has a slight kink in one end, but this doesn't prevent it from fitting nicely on a rod. Ivorine handle spins freely. Stamped D4 with four dots on cog. Fixed check is adequately strong. Reel weighs 4 3/8 oz. Another very scarce Dingley, especially considering size and retailer, from the late 1920's/early 30's.

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.
