For sale here is a scarce 2 1/2” Jardine patent brass and ebonite trout fly reel from the late 1800s. The reel features a perforated winding plate, caged drum (Heaton patent), horn handle that spins freely, German silver rims, perforated bridge foot, triple cage pillars and fixed check mechanism. Excellent plus overall condition. Minor line burns exist on one pillar. The clicker sounds and works flawlessly and there's absolutely no rub while winding. The reel weighs 4 5/8 oz. This is a great fishing reel to this day! I've seen a few 3 inch models the last few years, but this is the first 2 1/2 inch model I've seen!
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.
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.
