Otto Zwarg Saguenay Fly Reel 2/0 - Brooklyn Model


A very nice Otto Zwarg Saguenay Model 300 salmon fly reel in 2/0 size. RHW. 3 3/8" diameter with a 1 3/8" spool width and weighing 10.6 ounces. Single action. Serial number B83, one of the earliest Brooklyn-made reels before Zwarg moved to St. Petersburg in 1948. Excellent overall condition free of any major defects. The frame is in great shape, as are the pillars and sideplates. The screws show virtually no sign of having been touched, and the red dots around the drag adjuster are all nice and intact. The foot appears to have one side slightly filed, as it is slightly shorter than the other and there are a few discreet filemarks on it. The serial number is stamped on the side of the foot crossbar, and on the underside "300" and "2/0" have been stamped as well. No bag or pouch. Brooklyn reels are hard to find in good condition, and this is a very fine example of this model.

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.
