For sale here is a 60 yd Pflueger Golden West fly reel in excellent condition. The creme de la creme of the Pflueger reel lineup was and remains the Bulldog trademarked "Golden West". What makes this reel very unique is the aluminum sandwiched between two layers of hard rubber to form the rims. Similar to the Hawkeye, the Golden Wests have nickel silver parts and a hard rubber handle as well. Most of the Golden West reels had a serial number stamped into the hard rubber on the backplate. This one reads "6851". Mechanically, this reel is in superb condition, very tight and a very strong consistent click. On/off button works as intended. There are some small chips out of the hard rubber handle on this reel, as shown in the photos. The pillars, slotted screw cap and handle crank could use a good soak/clean to make the nickel silver shine again!
