Hardy - Perfect 2 7/8" Fly Reel - 1950's
For sale here is a 1950's vintage 2 7/8" Hardy Perfect fly reel in very good used condition. Featuring full length ribbed brass foot, adjustable tensioner and dual-engageable pawls. The ebonite handle spins freely and has faded to a pleasant black/bronze color. The gray enamel finish shows wear in the usual spots, mostly on the rims. There is finish loss to the pillar from right-hand fishing, but no grooves or line burn. Set up for RHW but this reel could be fished LHW by flipping the pawl. Mechanically very tight, ready to fish.
