Hardy Salmon Perfect Fly Reel 4" 1905 Check


A nice Hardy 4" Wide Drum Perfect with the Hardy's 1905 check mechanism. RHW. Good overall condition with solid patina on the frame and spool with a few superficial scratches here and there. Full length smooth brass foot. The winding plate patina is uniform in color but has a slightly rougher surface to the touch and is dimensionally slightly convex (though this has no impact on the reel's mechanics). Ivorine handle which spins freely. Minimal line wear to the pillars. Very tight mechanically with no wobble. The turks head locking nut and tensioner works perfectly and the reel has a smooth and satisfying click. A nice example of a fine early salmon reel that's ready for more years of service.

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.
