187252 1/4" ENGLISH SOLID BRASS FLY REEL C. 1900
This is a 2 1/2" diameter English made solid brass fly reel from circa 1900. We believe every thing is correct on it except possibly for the two screws above the reel foot on the back side plate. They fit and are flush but they do not have the same patina as the rest of the reel......that said the reel is still collectable and displays beautifully! We left the small amount of old silk braided line on the reel as found. Ebonite handle knob is all original as is the brass spool release screw. The brass foot has not been cut or filed. Found with a small corduroy reel sack included. Please click on its image for additional closeups...we have not cleaned or polished this reel as we always leave that to the buyers discretion.

While it may be offered at a reasonable price, this is by no means a budget "compromise" reel as no options have been overlooked. The series is fully machined out of a proprietary aluminum alloy, fully anodized for protection and built to take the type of abuse applied to a reel that is used every day of the season."
