Hardy - Perfect 3 7/8" Fly Reel w/ Spare Spool
For sale here is a Hardy Perfect 3 7/8" reel with extra spool in very good used condition. Likely made just after WWII, the reel has straight line lettering, worn leaded finish and Monel line guard. Dual pawls, full length ribbed brass foot and the ebonite handle spins freely. The rim mounted tension regulator works perfectly, and the reel is mechanically tight. The extra spool fits nicely, and has a slight recess at the spindle hole, possibly to accept a retaining screw. RHW, great for 7-8-9wt lines, perfect for larger single hand rods or even some trout spey rods. Sold with a blue and cream Hardy's clam shell case.
