For sale here is a RARE Dingley-made 3 1/2" caged spool fly reel made for retailer William Mills & Co in New York. It's very hard to find Wm Mills reels like this. This highly sought after brass pin caged reel has an early fixed caliper check, which is nicely blued and adequately strong. Correct original and un-filed smooth brass foot which has a minor kink but this doesn't hinder its reel seat fit whatsoever. No line grooves. Minor pitting by the rim edge on same side as the Wm Mills stamp. No cracks. Original ivorine handle spins freely. As with most leaded Dingleys, the majority of the original leading remains on the reel. Reel has the D stamp inside.
