Dingley Fly Reel 3 1/8" - Walker Bampton

For sale here is a 3 1/8" fixed check fly reel made by Dingley and stamped Walker Bampton. There is no D stamp but all characteristics point to Dingley made. Square spindle base, screws holding foot and handle, and the common Dingley spindle boss. This reel is in really nice condition. No end play or spool wobble. Foot is full length and not filed. Gear teeth and pawl still super sharp. Face of spool obviously has a shiny finish. It appears original to me, although I could be wrong. Regardless, the finish is smooth in all respects and there are no marks which would lead one to believe it has been polished.

This reel also comes with the silk line shown. It is in very usable condition, given a good cleaning and re-dressing.
