We're lucky to have one of these fine Hardy St George Junior reels that Hardy reissued approximately ten years ago, this one in the desirable "spitfire" finish. The original St George Junior was manufactured from 1928 - 1963 and remains one of the most loved models by classic reel aficionados. Just 2 9/16" in diameter it is perfect for smaller rods and light trout fishing. Each of these is machined from bar-stock and hard anodized, with a smooth foot and agate line guard. Comes with the original Hardy box and a light tan leather and sheepskin reel pouch.
