Evooution F # 167

$100.00

You are viewing an absolutely pristine vintage Gold Anodized Salmon or Trout 3 1/4" fly reel "The EVOLUTION F #167" made by The Merado Mfg.Co. of Kent Washington. The reel made of bar stock aluminum and then gold anodized all over, meaning that it can be fished in both fresh water or salt water. The reel is set for Right Hand Wind, but can easily be reversed internally to a Left Hand Wind (detailed instructions included in the box). The reel has a two screw spool release latch (very similar to the Hardy reels of England), and a smooth full foot. The reel is MINT, NIB= New in the Box; that means that it never got wet,never went fishin', never got lined~~never!

Listing Price: $100.00

The spool is perforated with three rows of holes on the front and two rows on the back. It has a drag adjustment wheel on the back, with a ball bearing drag/drive system. The frame, spool and foot are made from bar stock aluminum and then gold anodized all over, meaning that the reel can be used for both salt and fresh water fly fishing. The crank handle is made from a finely grained wood and a counter ballancing weight. The reel weighs 4.2 ounces and has a line capacity of WF8-9F.

Please note that we have two (2) of these reels left for sale, after which there are no more.

As noted, the wind can easily be changed from RHW to LHW (instructions inclosed), and a fitted neoprine pouch. We have fished this size reel on Kodiak Island Alaska for steelhead and salmon, and listening to the reel 'scream' as the fish is taking out line is an absolute '"blast". We usually load the reel with about 50 yards of 12 pound micron backing and a floating fly line of WF6F and a short leader.
