Janciuras, Joe - Restigouche size 6/0 fly reel

Perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a Joe Janciuras 6/0 Vom Hofe Restigouche style reel. Stainless steel rims, ebonite sideplates, with nickel silver fittings. Joe made only two of these reels in his lifetime. Absolutely exquisite craftsmanship, testament to why many think Joe was one of the most talented reel makers of the entire 20th century. Silky smooth drag operation. The reel has never been lined and remains in like-new condition. Comes with a fine Arne Mason leather case with Joe's oil cap affixed to the top (also the only reel case ever made with this feature).

Reel Dimensions:
4 1/4" diameter
1 11/16 spool width
Weighs 17 oz.
