Dingley Fly Reel 3 1/2" - Perfect Style


For sale here is a fine Dingley 3 1/2" Perfect style fly reel. Stamped D2, 2 on the winding plate and foot and two dots on the cog. This excellent condition reel is RHW and comes with a nice and strong dual pawl check system from the 1930's. Copper strap over tensioner adds a very nice touch to this reel. Tensioner works perfectly. No line guide or retailer stamp on this one. Gear teeth and pawl still very sharp. Un-filed original smooth brass reel foot with two screws fitting into the flat pillar. Foot is bent but can be bent into proper position by a qualified reel repair mechanic. Crazed xylonite handle that spins freely. Very nice and original nickel silver spool screw. The reel has no wobble and I rate the spindle fit a 9.5 out of 10. No cracks/chips or prior repairs. Majority of original leading remaining. Reel weighs 8.9 oz and the foot is 2.9 inches long.

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.
