HARDY LIGHTWEIGHT, ORIGINAL SERIES, THIRD MODEL...$300 SOLD

This is Hardy's Lightweight, the reel that came before their more familiar LRH Lightweight. Features a solid spool, non-adjustable check, and four-pillar frame. Set for right-hand wind, but fully reversible. This is the third model of the Lightweight with a two-screw spool latch, ribbed alloy foot, and duplicated check. Line capacity is right for a 4wt.

Condition is good with some evidence of honest fishing use. Comes with a protective soft leather case. This is a handsome and distinctive 4-weight reel, especially for rods from the 1950s.
