SCARCE VINTAGE FARLOW LONDON B-W-P SALMON FLY REEL
Here we have a top quality 4 INCH B-W-P MODEL FLY REEL BY FARLOW LONDON.
The reel has various stamps including the HOLDFAST LOGO and NEW ZEALAND PATENT making it one of the scarcer varieties.
The reel looks to be in VG used condition though does have some paint loss in places and also some scratches to silver coloured pierced plate.....see pics.
Though the reel is stamped 4 inches the actual diameter is 4 1/4.
The reel is robust and has a nice tight action.
Our limited research indicates this reel dates to the 1930s though to us looks much later in style.
