Hardy - St. George 3 3/8" Fly Reel
For sale here is a 3 3/8" Hardy St George fly reel in RHW. This is a 1920's vintage reel featuring an engagable spare pawl, leaded finish, unblemished agate line guide, and desirable large arbor spool. Mechanically very smooth and tight, though there are a few cosmetic notes. The handle has been replaced and interior of the spool was scratched/filed while trying to remove the original handle rivet. A hole was drilled on the opposite side of the spool, presumably this was how the handle rivet was ultimately removed. Both the filed area and the hole are cosmetic considerations, and would likely be covered with line while fishing. The face of the reel is stamped "Made for the Spiro Co. - San Francisco. A nice reel to fish, given the issues described.
