Vom Hofe, Edward - Model 504 Tobique Fly Reel - Size 2/0

For sale here is a size 2/0 Edward Vom Hofe Model 504 Tobique Salmon fly reel and original leather case in near mint condition. The best example I've come across. This reel carries the 1902 patent "Edward Vom Hofe Maker -N.Y.-" marked drag knob cover, and has a strong click and fully functional adjustable drag with super bright red indicator dots. D178 serial number on the foot -- made in 1937. Full-length and un-filed foot. Scratch and crack free side plates. No buggered screws. The drag is as smooth and strong as I've encountered. The leather case is also in pristine condition. A wonderful example for the EVH fisherman/collector!
