Hardy St George Salmon Reel

St George Salmon reel

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!
