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

For sale here is an exceptionally rare original Hardy Cascapedia salmon fly reel made in the late 1930s. This 4/0 size reel is one of twenty-six total known to have been made. The reel remains in excellent and original condition with some surface wear and fading. 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!
