    Vintage feel with modern performance.

    Built and designed by master craftsmen in Alnwick, England, the Hardy Wide Spool Perfect Fly Reel provides a truly classic look and sound with uncompromising performance. The wide spool increases the backing capacity for long runs, and the time-tested click-check system lends a butter smooth, sweet singing drag. Add in the dark anodized finish and ivorine handle, and you've found a worthy companion for your vintage bamboo rod.
