Vintage Hardy Marquis Salmon #1 Reel Made in England

My Father-in-law is 80 years old and feels he is coming to the end of his fly fishing life. He has asked me to sell some of his reel collection for him. These reels are all at least 30 years old, many older. Unlike the new Hardy reels that are made in Korea, these are the real deal (no pun intended.) My Father-in-law fished these reels all over America and Canada, and took very good care of all of them. They are in very good to excellent condition and perfectly functional. All the reels being sold will work fine with newer style rods or will complement any one interested in preserving the integrity of their bamboo fly rod fishing.
This Hardy Marquis Salmon #1 reel is in wonderful condition and functions perfectly. T is very slight honest wear, a round 300 yards of new backing is supplied with the reel. Comes with original Hardy case and is able to be set up for either right or left hand retrieve. You can proudly use this vintage piece of fishing history on your new style rod or bamboo rod. Nothing sings like a Marquis with a Salmon pulling on the line! Shipping is 10.00 in the continental US, priority insured to your door. Check my feedback and .
