Hardy Perfect 2 7/8" Fly Reel


For sale here is a wartime-era Hardy Perfect 2 7/8" trout fly reel with unblemished agate line guide, full-length smooth brass foot, faded ebonite handle (brown now) and rim tensioner. Single pawl Dup MKII check. Spool rocks just a little, otherwise a very nice reel mechanically. The reel weighs 5 3/4 oz. It includes Jimmy Smith's initials on the back of the winding plate. It's possible this reel started out its life as a black painted wartime reel, or an original "in-the-white" reel. It's hard to be certain. A stunning reel visually and a great size Perfect for the trout fisherman!

Shipping Information

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.
