FT/FS Unique vintage J W Youngs 3 1/2" condex

This is a vintage reel with a bit of history...

During WW2 Youngs was contracted to make parts for the firing mechanism in the spitfire aircraft. After the war, they had lots of the paint they used left over. With permission from Dunlop they used the paint to finish their reels!

This is a "Dunlop green" J W Youngs condex.

This reel was well suited to my 4,5 and even 6 weight switch rods.

Reel can be seen here http://s1284.photobucket.com/user/TH...bile%20Uploads


I would prefer a trade opposed to a sale. Looking for a small clicker reel for a 3 weight... Or a bunch of dry flies, or tying material for dries...

Or whatever else...

100 OBO shipping on your dime.

Cheers!
