Carpenter, W.E. - 2 5/8" Fly Reel

For sale here is a 2 5/8" S-handle trout reel sold by Walt Carpenter. Aluminum construction with black side plates and spool, and brass screw/accents. There is some very faint writing on the reel foot indicating a 5wt line was one it at one point, although the reel appears unused. LHW, but the bias is almost neutral (could be fished either way). Spool width of 7/8" and the reel weighs 3.6oz. I think it would be perfect with a 4 or 5wt line. This un-badged Carpenter reel comes from the personal collection of rodmaking legend Glenn Brackett, and packs into the original box with a personal inscription from Walt Carpenter. A beautiful trout reel with an historic touch, ready to fish or collect.
