An excellent Saracione Deluxe 3" reel. Perfect working order, with original leather box marked "Saracione Deluxe" and "Made in U.S.A". This appears to be an early version of Joe' well-regarded deluxe line of reels, which are now retailing at nearly $2,500. Normal scratching and scuffing from use. This reel has visited the Brule river often, and now it's ready for many years of service on your favorite river. Great value and first-rate craftsmanship.
