For sale here is a R.L. Winston Co. "Vintage" Limited Edition Trout Fly Reel made in the early 1990s. Reel is in mint condition and is set up for left-hand retrieve. This reel is for a 5/6 line with a 3 1/4" diameter and 13/16" wide spool. Comes in mint condition pine presentation box with mint condition spare spool and reel oiler. Serial #0291. Also comes with ALL of the original packaging....the first time I've seen the original cardboard box and the white certificate of authenticity. Don't miss out!
100% of the benefits from the sale of this reel will be directed toward Andy Royer's cancer recovery fund. For those of you who don't know Andy (The Bamboo Broker), he has been supplying the best-quality Tonkin cane to the bamboo rodmaking community for many years. Tom Morgan graciously donated this "new old stock" reel set for Andy's recent fundraising auction, held in Seattle. There was a minimum reserve set on this reel set and it ended up not meeting reserve, so it's being offered here at what I consider fair value for this type of limited edition reel.
