Default Hardy Perfect 1912 check 4-1/4? wide drum salmon fly reel fish or collect

A rare Hardy Perfect wide drum alloy salmon fly reel fitted with 1912 check, 4-1/4” diameter in full working order,

strapped tension regulator with Turks lock screw, rotating nickel line guide stamped Hardy’s, Pat, correct 102mm smooth brass foot which is straight and factory original along with the white handle, factory original left-hand drum screw. the reel turns silky smooth with a good positive check clickler,

Two minor issues, you will see a small amount of alloy corrosion on the rim edge, doesn’t in anyway affect the reel strength or its smooth running operation, and underside of the winding plate you can just see a feint hairline around part of the handle, BOTH can be seen in the images,

That’s said; the reel looks great, the check is smooth and adjustable and is 100% fishable representing great value at this price
