Hardy - Bougle Agate III Fly Reel
For sale here is a Hardy Bougle Agate III fly reel in mint condition. A rather scarce reel, and the only Bougle made with an agate line guard. This one has never been lined and features an anodized hunter green frame with silver spool and winding plate. Both winding plate and spool have the distinct teardrop porting seen on the Bougle lightweight series reels. Smooth alloy foot, adjustable click & pawl check and cream colored handle grasp. 3" between the pillars, a perfect size for 4-5wt fishing. Unblemished gray agate line guide, oriented for RHW. These reels were originally released in the Japanese market, although a number were sold in the states and Europe. A pristine example of a stunning reel. Sold in the original box with soft case & reel papers.
