This is a very rare Hardy St George salmon reel *a low production reel dating c 1920-24
Available in take it or leave it 4-1/4 diameter only.
Somewhere between approx. 80 and 100+ reels were produced in two patterns plus a variant or two along the way
The reel was priced approx. 15% more expensive than the Perfect which at the time (still is by many) considered the ultimate fly reel;
this factor may have contributed to the lack of interest in the St George Salmon.
Its a fine example reel with large winding barrel, large O ring line guide and original white handles,
One of the rarest of all the St George reels; many collectors simply never see one.
This reel has been sold to one of our private customers. Price undisclosed.*
