Farlow's - 3" Perfect-Style Fly Reel

For sale here is a Farlow's 3" perfect-style fly reel in very good used condition. Solid aluminum frame and spool with ivorine handle grasp and nickel silver retaining screw. RHW with a caliper check spring controlled by a strap-over tensioner. The reel is mechanically tight with strong check throughout its range. Each piece is stamped "66" internally (or perhaps "99"?). The leaded finish is retaining nicely, although it shows some wear from honest use. The Farlow's stamping and "Holdfast" logo remain clear and crisp on the winding plate. I have two condition notes: 1) one end of the reel foot has the corners angled off slightly (this is cosmetic) and 2) the winding plate has a slight inward bend at the handle (also purely cosmetic). Weight is 7.11oz, this reel should balance well with a longer (8'+) 5wt bamboo rod.

Don't miss a beat!
