Edward Vom Hofe Model 355 Peerless Fly Reel - Size 4

SKU: VFT4987

For sale here is a super scarce Edward Vom Hofe Model 355 Fly Reel - Size 4. Late 19th century reel(presumably made in 1895), owing to the lack of model number on the reel foot (instituted at the turn of the century), or serial number (instituted in 1908). This model was later dubbed the "Peerless" in 1911.Excellent original condition. Nickel silver rims, handle arm screw, counterbalance, sliding click switch, pillars and screws. The full length aluminum foot is in fine condition, straight and unmolested. Screw heads are in fine condition. No cracks in the hard rubber plates. Headplate shows slight scoring. The handle arm is straight and does not contact the headplate while winding. Mechanically the reel is excellent with a smooth and strong click. The original Edward Vom Hofe Model 355 reels in general are extremely difficult to find, even more so in this size. Don't let this one get away!
