Hardy Cascapedia 4/0 Salmon Fly Reel - 1930's Original

For sale here is a very fine and exceptionally rare original Hardy Cascapedia salmon fly reel made in the late 1930s. Also included is the very scarce original Hardy D-block leather reel case made specifically for the Cascapedia. This 4/0 size reel is one of twenty-six total known to have been made. The reel remains in excellent and original condition. The drag is still very strong and smooth. These reels were made "rings up" style whereby the spool spins in the opposite direction of the handle and there is a single roller bar in the rings-up position. The frame and sideplates were made from duralumin rather than german silver rim & ebonite sideplates like the earlier Cascapedias. 1.75 to 1 gear ratio.

Don't miss out on this wonderful piece of Hardy Brothers history!
