Bogdan - Model 50 Light Salmon Fly Reel
For sale here is a RHW Bogdan Model 50 light salmon reel in excellent used condition. An early example featuring ventilated reel foot with "No. 50" stamped on the side. Ported side plate and spool with counterbalanced serpentine handle. 3 1/2" diameter with a spool width of 1 5/32", capacity is for a WF9 + 110yds. Weight is 8.8oz. This is a single action reel with the famous Bogdan double-brake drag. The drag selector has some finish loss at the corners. The reel is finished in silver with the plum-black anodizing seen on some earlier reels. A lightly used example that has been well kept. The only signs of use are light scratches to the face plate and some small scratches/marks to the rims in the usual spots. Mechanically perfect, a very nice reel for light salmon/steelhead fishing. Sold in the original brown suede pouch.
