The Hardy Perfect is an iconic British-made fly fishing reel. we have a wide range of antique and vintage Hardy Perfect reels, both the salmon and the trout fishing models in brass and alloy versions. Hardy’s The “Perfect” Fly Reel is a collectors favourite because there are over 100 model variants to collect, plus many other un-catalogued oddities.
It is also an anglers favourite because of the patent ball-bearing system, which gives the Perfect reel range longevity and a lifetime of use.
This now world-famous fly reel was first marketed as a brass model in 1890, in which each part was hand made by one man.
Hardy Perfects are still being made today and are one of the most sought after vintage reels available.
