Pflueger - 1492 Medalist Fly Reel - Birdcage Arbor

For sale here is an early click and pawl Pflueger Medalist model 1492 in excellent used condition. Early/mid 1930's reel. 2 7/8" diameter with an interior spool width of 3/4". This reel features a round Diamolite line guard, sculpted pillars, metal spool latch cover, one-piece cast reel foot,  amber pyralin handle, and birdcage arbor. The reel shows some cosmetic signs of use but is in excellent overall condition. The click and pawl drag is drum tight, though there is the smallest hint of end play; not an uncommon occurrence on these reels. A fantastic early example of the smallest in the Medalist series, ready to fish or collect.
