For sale here is a good example of a Julius Vom Hofe Size 3 1/2 fly reel with somewhat rare spider washer. Reel is in good condition. The nickel silver plating on the brass shows some age and tarnish. I do not find any cracks in the rubber. The clicker is consistent but fairly strong. On/off click switch works fine and the spool spins freely when in the off mode. The white specks in the photos are dust, not scratches.
