For sale here is a Hardy LRH Lightweight fly reel. "L" shaped line guard with one rivet attaching it to the pillar and a pin securing it to the frame. I believe this model is from the late 1940s or early 1950s. Two screw spool release latch. MKII check. Straight-line lettering on the face plate. RHW. Excellent condition mechanically. Exterior shows honest marks from use. No cracks, dings or chips. Tensioner works perfectly. Springs are strong and pawls and gear teeth retain their original sharp edges. Full length ribbed alloy foot. Ebonite handle spins freely. Very little spool/spindle movement.
