Winston Vintage 5/6 Fly Reel 3 1/4"


An R.L. Winston "Vintage" Limited Edition fly reel with a spare spool, 3 1/4" diameter and set up for LHW. This was part of a series made in the early 1990s by Siskiyou Design in Oregon USA. Fair used condition. Normal rim rash on the frame and the counterbalance and nameplate both show signs of cosmetic corrosion. The spare spool also has "DT6" scratched into the spool side on the part hidden when loaded. The separate reel oil container that these came with also shows signs of corrosion. The reel and spool come in a pine box, though, as is often the case with these reels, the foam in the box has significant deterioration. The reel is fine mechanically, however, and would be fun to pair with a Winston rod. Designed to hold a #5 or #6 line with plenty of backing.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. 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.
