NEW IN BOX HARDY HUSKY FLY REEL, ENGLAND...$325

 This is an unused Hardy Husky from the 1970s, complete with box and vinyl case. The Husky was one of the larger reels in the Lightweight series, suitable for 8wt or possibly 9wt. Overall diameter is 3 3/8" and overall width is 1 1/2". The Husky is notable because it was probably the first silent check disk drag fly reel on the market. The mechanism is simple and reliable, using a metal disk and a composite brake. This one is in superb condition with no evidence of having been lined, or handled too much. Easy conversion LH/RH wind.
