For sale here is a Hardy Bougle Agate Lightweight III fly reel in unused condition. Comes with original pouch.
Unquestionably one of the most beautiful reels ever produced by Hardys. The Lightweight Bougle Agate reels were originally made for the Japanese market and they are somewhat hard to come by. This is the only Bougle fly reel Hardy has ever made with an agate lineguard. The neat design of the original Bougle combines with the appealing tear-drop porting to produce a reel that deserves to be in any collection.
This Bougle Agate III measures 3" across the pillars. With the compensating check mechanism and clear fine agate, this a nominal right handed reel (although the check would allow it to be fished Lefty).
Made in Alnwick, England. The capacity is DT5 + 30 yds.
