Orvis CFO IV Fly Reel - Screwback

For sale here is a very early Orvis CFO IV fly reel - the screwback model with three holes in the reel foot. Made in England. Excellent condition. The reel is dated to 1972, the year the CFO premiered based on the lack of a nickel-silver line guard the models from 1973 forward possessed. Left or right hand retrieve. Exposed spool rim for easy palming. Tensioner still works great with a very pleasing clicker sound. The latch performs flawlessly. At a diameter of 3 1/8" the IV is a great all around reel for anything from a 4-7 wt rod. The reel weighs 4.0 oz. Comes with original reel case and includes backing.
