For sale here is an extremely scarce left hand retrieveDingley 3 1/8" Perfect style fly reel, retailed by Fosters Bros. from Ashbourne. This reel is in excellent working condition and features a strong dual pawl check system from the 1930's. The tension regulator works perfectly. Bronze line guide. The gear teeth and pawls are still very sharp. Original, un-filed and full length smooth brass reel foot with two screws. The crazed xylonite handle spins freely. The reel has no excessive wobble or end play. No cracks/chips or prior repairs. The majority of the original leaded finish remains. The reel is stamped "3" on multiple parts. A rare find indeed!
