Hardy Perfect 3 3/8" fly reel - rod in hand logo


For sale here is a 3 3/8" Hardy Perfect with Rod in Hand aluminium faceplate, from around 1900. 1896 check with strapped tension adjuster in good working order; original brass foot, unmolested; nice white ivorine handle and cup. Slight amount of spindle play and line burns to two pillars - see photos. Centre screw isn't original, but does what it's supposed to. There is an apparently original, machined groove around the outer rim of the check plate, with no obvious purpose - if anyone has similar, or knows its purpose, we're curious to know.

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.
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.
