Hermann, Dr. Paul - Salmon Fly Reel - LHW


For sale here is a Dr. Paul Hermann Salmon fly reel. Serial no. 135. This one is left-hand retrieve. Near mint condition with a couple of tiny marks on the rims. If you ever have a chance to own one of these reels, you are very lucky. Dr. Hermann only made a little over 200 of these salmon models, a little over 100 Baby Hermanns, ~20 Large Trout Models and much fewer of the remaining two models, the Dry Fly Salmon and the Sea Trout. This reel is serial number 138. The reel bag is missing its drawstring, which could easily be replaced.

You will simply not find another salmon reel with such a fine and reliable drag system, built to handle whatever you are lucky enough to hook into. Every single handmade part of this reel, even down to the 38 screws, screams quality.
