Hardy St. John Fly Reel


For sale here is a very nice Hardy St. John fly reel in very good condition. 3 7/8" diameter. Weighs ~8 1/2 oz. 7/8/9 weight reel. Spool width 15/16". Three-screw latch. The leaded finish sports a stunning bronze effect. Original 2 7/8" long smooth brass foot. MKII check with one engage-able pawl and one spare. Spindle fit is excellent with only a slight bit of up/down movement like most St. George style reels. As can be seen in the very clear photos, the foot has been shaped to fit the prior owner's rod.

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

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.
