S.E.BOGDAN "00" Grisle/Sea Tr RHW Fly Reel

$3,995.00

You are casting your eyes on a S.E. BOGDAN Model "00" which is the GRISLE/SEATROUT fly reel. This RIGHT HAND WIND, which is 3.25" in diameter, reel weight (oz.) of 10 ounces.

Made and suitable for a 7 weight line, the spool width being 1.15" with backing capacity of 75#20.

This reel is one of the most sought after salmon models of all the Bogdan salmon fly reels because of it's size for about a 7 weight fly line and about 75 yards of 20 pound micron backing, and is a 2:1 multiplier (meaning it retrieves 2 times for every one turn of the crank handle)and amply large enough to easily handle and master even the most substantial salmon, in addition to having an adjustable flawless drag system (with 11 settings) that money can buy.

The reel is a very rare model as very few were ever made for Right Hand Retrieve. The reel comes complete with the original suede draw string bag.

You should observe the name engraved in gold on the side of the reel, being Gene Anderegg, who was the former owner and a famous person in the fly fishing world, where some of his exploits include being a founding member of The Federation of Fly Fishers, as well as The McKenzie River Flyfishers, The Theodore Gordon Flyfishers of New York, just to name a few. This was his personal reel, engraved in gold by Bogdan.

In my description of this reel I have to be completely honest and say it is used by me.

I have only fished with this reel twice and it is as close to new as you can get.

The only sign of wear is on the rim where there are a few minor scratches. A Bogdan salmon reel is one of the finest ever made, the very best that money could have bought, and are no longer produced today by Stan Bogdan (see obituaries at the end of this description) as he has passed we hope to a better place. Amen.

This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of salmon fishing history. Please read a Bogdan obituary at the end of this listing to learn more about the person who changed the way the world fished for salmon and trout, being the maker of the best reel that money could buy.

The reel is about 1982 vintage.

For that fisher person who thinks he has it all, this is the rarest and best fly reel money can buy!

Stanley E. Bogdan (December 16, 1918 – March 27, 2011) was the founder of S.E. Custom Built, a company dedicated to the handmade construction of fly reels. Bogdan was born in Nashua, NH and lived their throughout his entire life.[ He became interested in fly fishing at an early age when he began receiving outdated copies of a hunting and fishing magazine from a local sports retailer. At age 13, Bogdan was tying his own flies and would then become immersed in the sport. Upon graduating high school, Bogdan began work at Rollins Engine Company, a local engines manufacturer in Nashua. Later on, while working as a machinist, he began constructing some of the first prototypes for his reels. Stanley Bogdan died on March 27, 2011. His wife Phyllis died in 1995. S.E. Custom Built fly reels are primarily known for their ability to greatly reduce drag. This is mostly attributed to Bogdan's unique concept of the double-break shoe, known as the hallmark of any Bogdan reel. The company is mostly focused on the production of salmon reels, however there have been a few trout reel models made.
