Description

In mint condition as it has never been used and complete with Hardy neoprene pouch etc. Made in a special colour combination of bronze/ champagne.

The only other time I have seen this colour combination is on the Limited Edition 125 years ÖFG  est. 1880 Österreichische Fischereigesellschaft / Austrian Fishing Society reels. An exclusive collector’s item, made in cooperation with Rössler Fishing Gear, a Hardy Bouglé Fly Reel MK V for the 125 years anniversary of the ÖFG.

The first Hardy Bougle reel was catalogued in 1903, and was, as it remains to this day, a variation on the famous Hardy Perfect reel. The variation was initially requested by Frenchman Louis Bougle, an extremely knowledgeable fisherman and tournament caster who requested that Hardy produce a reel with a good line capacity which remained light enough to balance rods between 4 1/2oz and 8oz.

From this initial request, the Bougle reel has gone from strength to strength and become one of the most famous reels in angling history. Now, 110 years later, Hardy are proud to offer a new variant of the Bougle reel featuring a rolling pillar, reversible click check, naval brass bush and spindle. Put simply, this Bougle reel is sure to become one of the classics.
