Meek / Abercrombie & Fitch - Model 54 Fly Reel
For sale here is a Meek 54 click and pawl fly reel made by Horton Manufacturing in Bristol CT, branded for Abercrombie & Fitch. 2 7/8" diameter, 1" wide frame and the reel weighs 4.8oz. Dual pawls with RHW bias, brass spindle and knurled nickel silver spool release. Black ebonite handle grasp spins freely, and the reel foot is unmolested. Very good cosmetic and mechanical condition. The spool has the slightest bit of end play, a common occurrence on these uniqua-style reels. A nice size for 3/4wt lines, and a fantastic piece for A&F collectors.
