Dingley Fly Reel 3"


For sale here is a Dingley 3" fly reel. Made in the 1930's. Stamped D11 on the frame and 11 on the foot. This excellent condition reel is RHW and retains nearly all of its original leading. Gear teeth and pawl still very sharp. Un-filed original smooth nickel silver reel foot with two screws measures 2.6". Great condition ebonite handle and it spins freely. The handle doesn't look like most Dingley handles but the backside of the winding plate doesn't look unoriginal or messed with and the cup appears original as well. The reel has no wobble. The reel foot pillars are both slightly cracked where the foot attaches. However, reel foot remains securely attached - no movement whatsoever. Reel weighs 5.80 oz.

Shipping Information

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.

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.
