Saracione Tobique Fly Reel 1/0


A rare Joe Saracione Tobique 1/0 Limited Edition fly reel in 1/0 size. This was from a set of Vom Hofe replicas that Joe made in the 1990's and he only made 20 of these (I believe he had planned to do fifty in total, and the serial numbers were chosen by the customers, hence this one as serial #025). This reel is a flawless reproduction of the original Tobique complete with highly polished hard rubber sideplates and nickel silver rims. It measures 3 3/16" diameter with a 1 5/16" cross pillar width, 2:1 ratio multiplying retrieve, a rear 7-position drag, two rolling cross pillars, and a bronze spindle. It weighs 9.8 ounces on my scale, and is designed to hold #7/8 lines with approximately 100 yards of 30lb backing. This one is in near mint condition with a few very tiny marks on the frame edge in one area on the rims and some tiny mounting marks on the foot. Very clean otherwise. Set up for LHW. The reel comes in  a hard leather Arne Mason case embossed with "Saracione" and the reel size. A superb homage to one of Vom Hofe's best reels by a modern master!
