Vintage Bogdan Model #2 RHW Gold Anodized Rims Light Salmon Fly


Offered for sale is a very slightly used S.A. BOGDAN, Model #2 Light Salmon RHW Fly Reel. The reel's rims are anodized in GOLD, and has the classic "S" shaped handle, is a multiplier, meaning it is 2:1 (the line retrieves two times for every turn of the crank handle; the reel has the 11 settings drag on the reverse, the reel being 3.75" in diameter, weighing 12.5 ounces, to accommodate 10 weight line and 200 yards of 20 pound backing, and comes with the suede pouch and is marked 72-10 on the reel seat.#B30

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 10 weight fly line and about 200 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.

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!
