For sale here is a Hardy Bougle Agate Lightweight III fly reel in mint condition. Comes with original pouch, box, and paperwork.
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 The Lightweight Bougle Agate reels were originally made for the Japanese market and they are somewhat hard to come by.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. The reel can be used left or right handed but obviously the line guard is oriented for right hand retrieve. In a British racing green color with silver spool. The agate is unblemished as well.
Made in Alnwick, England. No chips, dings, scratches or handling marks. Anything you see on the reel in the photos merely represents a reflection. The capacity is DT5+30.
