A nice Hardy Salmon Perfect fly reel, 4 1/4” in diameter. RHW. This reel has a ribbed brass foot that is 3 5/8” long with no file marks. It has Hardy’s patented revolving nickel silver line guide and the check regulator which works as it should. This circa 1955 reel is fitted with the stronger springs and larger pawls seen on Hardy’s larger salmon Perfects. There is no spool wobble, and there are no cracks nor line burns in the frame. With about 90% of its original enameling intact, this reel will balance well with longer double handed salmon rods.
