Description

An early Hardy The “Perfect” creel in superb original condition. Complete with removable shelf, front netting and authentic original strap. “Hardy Bros makers Alnwick” brass stamp on the rear of the creel.

Creels of this age rarely come up in such brilliant condition, there are no signs of any woodworm or damage. All the straps, hinges and buckles are in good working order and have not been replaced or repaired to my knowledge.

As featured in the 1910 Hardy Bros Anglers Guide & Catalogue, the creel is said to have the following advantages; a reverse opening lid (away from the fisherman) a top compartment for carrying lunch, a removable shelf for larger items e.g. waders, a front net ideal for carrying smaller items such as a light coat.
