Bradley, Richard -- 2 5/8" Trout Reel

For sale here is a Bradley 2 5/8" trout reel in excellent condition. Minor superficial wear. Made for a 3-4 wt line. Weighs 5 oz. Spool width 7/8".

The cog/gear on this reel and other Bradley reels has 48 teeth! The "pawl" in Bradley reels is a simple ball bearing, thus the need for more teeth than a usual gear in a standard click/pawl reel. The reel can be used right or left hand retrieve because there is equal "click" tension both ways.

The late Mr. Bradley made very fine reels and this one needs to find time on the stream.
