Hermann, Dr. Paul - Salmon Fly Reel - RHW Mint

For sale here is a Dr. Paul Hermann Salmon fly reel. This one is right-hand retrieve. Mint condition, never lined. Anything you see in the photos is lint or dust. Simply another amazing piece of work by Dr. Hermann. If you ever have a chance to own one of these reels, you are very lucky. Dr. Hermann only made a little over 200 of these salmon models, a little over 100 Baby Hermanns, 20 Large Trout Models and fewer of the remaining two models, the Dry Fly Salmon and the Sea Trout. As you can tell by the serial number of this one, this is a very late Salmon model when he was at his absolute best.

If you've seen the selling price of some Bogdan salmon reels lately, you'll realize that Paul's reels (at least this one) can still be purchased at a reasonable price level. Due to the unmatched workmanship of Dr. Hermann's reels as well as his limited production output, I'll let you do the math on the prospect of future value appreciation. Putting the value discussion aside though, you will simply not find another salmon reel with such a fine drag system, built to handle whatever you are lucky enough to hook into. Every single handmade part of this reel, even down to the screws, screams quality.
