Godfrey Bimetal Model 40 Reel


A nice Ted Godfrey Model 40 BiMetal fly reel, 2 1/2" diameter and set up for LHW. 1.23" frame width and weighs 6.2 ounces on my scale. Designed to hold a DT4 and 25 yards of backing. The reel may have been mounted on a rod but does not appear to have ever been fished. Raised pillar design with nickel silver sides and a bronze frame. Adjustable click and pawl drag. This reel has also been engraved on the backplate with trout on either side of the oil port cover (which also has a flower design on it), a small fly just above the port, and a mayfly above the Godfrey nameplate. The reel packs into a leather drawstring pouch with the original paperwork inside.

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.
