Hardy Perfect 4 1/4" fly reel - mid 1920s


For sale here is a very good example of a mid 1920s 4 1/4â" Hardy Perfect, wide drum, duplicated Mk 2 salmon reel. Most of the original bronzing is intact and displays the true patina of unmolested early Hardy reels (hard to capture in the photos). The reel shows signs of minimal use with no line grooves, cracks or damage. Brass foot is full length at 4â", and has not been filed or shortened. It does have a slight bend in it, but still fits on rods just fine. The reel has no spindle or spool play; and makes a wonderful sound.

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

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.
