Hardy Perfect 4 1/2" Wide Drum 1912 Check Fly Reel


For sale here is a great example of the sought-after Hardy Perfect with 1912 check. This is a 4 1/2" diameter reel in its original Hardy block leather case, and comes complete with a, possibly contemporary, silk line (we have not removed the line but the spool appears to be in perfect order) Full length (4 1/4" long) unmolested foot.  There is a very minor line burn to one pillar - see photos. There are the remains of someone's name written in ink to the leather case lid. The reel retains much of its original colour and has no noticeable play.

This reel will ship from our UK office where Vintage Fly Tackle is now set-up to accept consignments from the EU community.

As always, reasonable offers will be considered.

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.
