ANTIQUEHARDY BROS. ALNWICK. ENGLAND FLY FISHING REEL"THE SUNBEAM"DUPLICATED MARK IISIZE 2 3/4"PATENT Nos. 145904 & USA 369857This reel is used, but I would have to say "gently" used, there is much of the original leading left, there are no dents or major scratches and the surface scratches are minimal and only go through the leading which is great for a fine piece of outdoors men history that is in the range of being nearly a hundred years old. This reel turns free and smooth and has a really strong clicker that just sounds... cool.It can easily be changed from right to left hand wind also making this reel versatile as well as charming and functional.
