William Garden Aberdeen 2 1/2″ all brass fly fishing reel by Malloch

£79.00

William Garden Aberdeen 2 1/2″ brass fishing winch

Stamped W.GARDEN, ABERDEEN on the faceplate. Feintly scratched MCC underneath.

Reel handle turns freely.

Ratchet sounds only in reverse and spool rotation is a bit stiff.

There is a white substance on the inside of the reel foot and one spool edge so whatever it is may have leaked underneath into the spool resulting in the stiffness.

The backplate finish has been largely worn off or here has been at attempt at removal in the past to show the brass underneath. Please see the photographs.

Saying all that, the front of the reel looks great with the makers stamp and original finish and would still grace any collectors shelf.
