The original Bougle was last produced in 1939, and many collectors believe the reel reached both its functional and aesthetic apex, even though few reels were produced that year. Now, the 1939 Bougle Heritage Reel Series pays homage to those rare originals. These reels feature the time tested Mark II check mechanism and are finished with a dark gun metal anodization, reminiscent of the original.
Beautiful classic fly reels, the latest revision in over a century of the Perfect. This model features a wide spool for better capacity, a time-proven check system, and that classic Perfect sound. Ever since Forster Hardy was first granted a full patent for the Perfect reel design in 1889, our engineers, developers and consultants have been constantly striving for ways to improve on perfection, tweaking and adjusting to bring you what we believe are the best reels in their class to date. After all, if we offered anything less, it would not be a Perfect.
A re-modeled classic Hardy fly reel. The Hardy Marquis was a main stay of the Hardy line for many years. This new edition features numerous improvements to the original, including subtle updating of the classic style with an indented regulator button, increased porting, and improved regulation range.
