Hardy Perfect 3-1/8″ alloy trout fly reel 1917 check , agate guide & white handle
Early Hardy Perfect 3 1/8” alloy trout fly reel, the white handle factory fitted near the winding plate centre boss. Few of these ever turn up. Smooth agate line guide with very faint hairline crack, working rim tension regulator to internal Mk1 check. Correct 69mm smooth alloy foot stamped “Patent”, the foot fixed with factory rivets, the reel winds smooth & well, minor drum rock doesn’t affect operation. Good collector example.
