Hardy St. George Fly Reel 3" and spare spool - with leather cases!


For sale here is a Hardy St. George reel - 3" diameter with spare spool. The two leather cases for the reels are original, not made by Hardy's but sold by Von Lengerke and Detmold, which is also stamped on the reel. Three screw latch. Original and un-filed ribbed brass foot, which has a faint inscription reading "SLH Ward", presumably the original owner. The duplicated MKII check is very strong - tensioner works perfectly. The agate line guard is unblemished and crack-free. The spare spool is stamped "SS", another characteristic I have yet to see before. Don't miss out on this wonderful combination you probably won't come across again in this condition, if at all!

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.
