Thomas Cemm Vancouver BC Canada St John vintage fly reel boxed, rare!!


This is a rarely seen Thomas Cemm, Maker, Vancouver BC Canada bright finish alloy fly reel, clearly influenced by the Hardy St John, its similar in most aspects of design and manufacture if not a little heavier.

Cemm was prolific in the 1940’s -50s along with a handful of other Canadian makers, most of whom had the Hardy influence too.

I know there is a following for these reels from the various blogs and forums I see.

This is a 4″ diameter reel with correct factory red reverse taper handle, 3 screw latch and working rim tensioner, smooth check operating clicker, shaped smooth foot,  twin internal MK2 style check and pawls, fine original bright finish and comes with its rarely seen correct original box although part of the label is lost, it’s still in the box.

We will be listing another Cemm? reel so look out for that too.
