traditional reel Orvis Marquessa 3 3/4' large capacity
Orvis / Hart "Marquessa" Salmon Fly Reel
Disc drag anti-reverse salmon fly reel made for Orvis in the 1970s, called the Umpqua model with a diameter of 3 3/4" and 2" wide, weighing 12 oz. with a capacity of 400 yds of 20 lb plus a 11 WT line. I have a Left and Right-hand retrieve. This was known as the Orvis / Hart reel. It appeared in the Spring 1977 Orvis catalog. Both a cleaned and smooth, they have been used no major dings or dents. The left hand wind has a small finish issue on the rim. I tried to get it in the photos.
this righthand wind reel was sold, I have another in similar condition to sell
I am selling these for a friend who can no longer fish
$500 for either reel OBO thanks
