Hardy Bougle Fly Reel (Original)


An extremely scarce original Hardy Bougle fly reel, 3" diameter and set up for the typical RHW. Very good condition with normal cosmetic wear but no meaningful issues that I could find. The reel foot is full length and the spool is nice and tight. Duplicated Mark II check with an ivorine handle. The nickel silver rim tension regulator screw works perfectly. Interestingly, this reel has an internal badge from Von Lengerke and Detmold in New York (I've seen very few badged Bougles over the years). Bougles were made from 1903-1939 in relatively low numbers given the extra work it took to file the casting down to produce the raised pillar design. This one is a very fine example indeed!

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.

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).

Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
