Dingley Fly Reel 4" - Caged Spool

For sale here is a 1920's vintage 4" caged spool fly reel made by WH Dingley. RHW. The reel has some very unique spring/check work inside. This alone makes this a very unique Dingley reel. It's also a very nice and tight reel mechanically and the spring provides really nice tension when applied via the tensioner block. Stamped D12. Correct original and un-filed smooth brass foot. Original ivorine handle spins freely. Spool spins freely and accurately - no wobble. As shown in the photos, there are some line grooves to the usual pillar. As with most leaded Dingleys, the majority of the original leading remains on the reel. Reel weighs 13.15 oz. and the reel foot length is 3.3".
