Hardy - St. George 3 3/4" Fly Reel

For sale here is a 3 3/4" Hardy St. George Fly reel in very good used condition. Pre-war reel with three-screw latch cover and leaded finish. Full length ribbed brass foot, ebonite handle spins freely. Flawless white agate line guide is a recent replacement by Hardys in Alnwick. Mechanically very tight and the rim mounted tensioner works as intended. Badged internally for H.C. Golcher & Co. - San Francisco. You can see an "S" stamped on the reel, though the badge is covering the first of the reel makers initials; probably a "J" (Jimmy Smith) or possibly a "W" (Wilf Sinton). The reel shows some signs of wear, though much of the leaded finish is intact. Recently serviced by Hardys and ready for many more years on the water.
