JW Young Pattern 1A 3" fly reel - boxed

SKU: VFT12368

For sale here is a Pattern 1A fly reel made by JW Young in excellent original condition, with most of the black finish still on the reel. 3" diameter. Two other features make this a very unique and hard-fo-find reel. First, it is stamped JW Young. Second, it has an on-off clicker that works perfectly, allowing for free spool in addition to a very strong click pawl operation. This reel is super tight, virually no spool movement or wobble. Also comes with period-specific JW Young box. Not sure if it's original to this particular reel, but it could be. Some prior owner scratched through the Model and Size though, so probably not. Weighs 4.6 oz.
