Dingley Fly Reel 3" - Caged Spool - Pape Newcastle


For sale here is a very unique and rare 3 inch caged spool fly reel made for retailer Pape Newcastle by WH Dingley. Stamped 2. A little rim rash on this one but nothing approaching serious. Caliper spring is nice and strong. Original handle spins freely. Original brass reel foot. Minor line grooves on pillar. Pawl and gear teeth still sharp. No wobble and no end play - this is a super tight reel. Weighs only 4.85 oz which is also rare, given most of the 3 inch Dingley or Malloch made caged spool reels weigh anywhere from 5.5 oz to 6.25 oz.

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.
