Here is a classic reel not often seen for sale - a 4 1/4 inch Farlow Regal fly reel with lots of original leading remaining. Probably one of my favorite check systems ever. As with several other Regals I've handled, the check spring on this one is not the tightest I've seen, but it is a palmable spool. No wobble or other issues. No line grooves which is very rare in itself. Correct smooth brass foot attached with two screws - has been neatly filed on one end. Handle spins freely. Comes with old silk line shown in photos. A very collectible reel.
