For sale here is a very nice 3 1/8" Hardy Perfect fly reel with 1912 check in excellent original condition. Very fine red agate line guard is unblemished and crack-free. Full length smooth brass foot (2.55"), dark gray leaded finish, white handle with brass receiver, and nickel silver retaining screw. The highly prized 1912 checkwork is mechanically without fault, and the strap-over tensioner works as intended. The leaded finish is largely intact, with some visible loss on the face plate. 4-cusp spool fits perfectly with no end-play. A beautiful reel to fish or collect.
