This Hardy St George salmon reel is a low production reel dating from c. 1920-24.
Available in ‘take it or leave it’ 4-1/4” diameter only.
Somewhere between approximately only 80 – 100+ reels were produced in two patterns plus a variant or two along the way.
The reel was priced around 15% more expensive than the Perfect which at the time (and still is by many) was considered the ultimate fly reel; this factor may have contributed to the lack of interest in the St George salmon reel.
It’s an odd reel with a large winding barrel, large O ring line guide and pretty much large everything!
One of the rarest of all the St George reels; many collectors simple never see one.
