Hardy Perfect 3 1/4" Wide Drum Fly Reel with Line Guard


For sale here is a nice example of a pre-war Hardy Perfect Duplicated MK II wide drum fly reel from the 1930s with a nickel silver line guard. Badged for retailer H.C. Golcher & Co. San Francisco. The tensioner functions perfectly throughout its range. No excessive spool/spindle play. If you'll notice, the gear teeth are in fantastic condition for a reel of this age! The ebonite handle spins freely. The original ribbed brass foot has been neatly and smoothly filed on one end to aid the fit on modern reel seats.All in all, a spectacular Hardy reel in a hard to find size.

For some interesting history on "Golcher", read this from the Classic Fly Rod Forum archives.

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.
