Hardy Fortuna 6 inch Big Game Reel
Made by Hardy Bros Ltd England
A superb collectors statement piece – this Hardy Fortuna 6 inch reel in its Hiduminium anti-corrosive light alloy is in great condition.
“Suitable for all classes of Sea Trolling and boat fishing.”
“Designed to be a simple single action reel intended to be used under the rod, but can be successfully used on top when fitted with Van Brunt Lugs.”
The handles remain stationery when playing a fish to avoid injury. The braking mechanism is via a patented spring loaded friction clutch designed to give extremely sensitive adjustment.
Comes with original spanner and some copy literature about the reel and components.
