Joe Janciuras Restigouche size 6/0 fly reel


Perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a Joe Janciuras 6/0 Vom Hofe Restigouche style reel. Stainless steel rims, ebonite sideplates, with nickel silver fittings. Joe made only two of these reels in his lifetime. Absolutely exquisite craftsmanship, testament to why many think Joe was one of the most talented reel makers of the entire 20th century. Silky smooth drag operation. The reel has never been lined and remains in like-new condition. Comes with a fine Arne Mason leather case with Joe's oil cap affixed to the top (also the only reel case ever made with this feature).

Reel Dimensions:
4 1/4" diameter
1 11/16 spool width
Weighs 17 oz.

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.
