WTB- Hardy JLH Salmon

Hey Folks,

Looking for a 4" Hardy JLH as the title suggests. I am in Canada so must be willing to ship there. As far as condition it must be in good working order, I am okay with nics and scratches; I plan on fishing it, not displaying it on a mantle.

Cheers!

Jlh

I saw a number of sites in England had them just last nite great reel ive fished mine since 97 or 98 put Hardy Jlh in google search bar and tnere are quite a few dealers that have them bnib for around $300 usd I am considering buying a set of 2 Golden Prince a 9/10 and an 11/12 Just a word of advice it makes a much better single hand reel than double because it is so light from bar stock alluminum good luck

Please link me to these sites... I can't find one anywhere, particularly the
grey ones. I've fishes in Bulkley with one I borrowed and they are great in a light rod.

I just measured one of my JLH #8/9s & it is 3.75" outside diameter.

They were intended for single handed rods for grilse & sea trout etc & are fine with switch rods in lighter ratings but probably won't have the capacity you need for a Spey rod.

The 4" salmon reel is rated a #10/11 & has plenty of capacity but is still a lightweight reel.

They also made a golden version which was a dark bronze colour instead of grey with brass features instead of silver, but is mechanically identical to the standard model.

Regards, Tyke.

I thought all reels endraved with "salmon" where 4" and the size would be engraved on the smaller ones? Maybe I am wrong.

They are light and loud reel that's what makes them so awesome.

JLH Salmon

The Salmon version is an excellent match for light spey rods such as the Winston B2X series.

If they are classed as the salmon size they will be 4" diameter - this is the #10/11 size.

The #8/9 wasn't classified as a salmon reel, I'm looking at mine now & it is engraved "Made by House of Hardy England" above the central click adjustment knob & "JLH Ultralite #8/9" below it. It doesn't mention salmon on the 8/9 size.

The #8/9 classification refers to single handed lines, you would definitely not fit a mid head #8/9 Spey line + backing on it. Make sure you buy the 4 inch version - which is also wider in relation to its' diameter & holds a lot more line.

Regards, Tyke.

That's the same thing I asked the seller. Worst case I have a switch rod that the 8/9 will work well on. Let's get back on track here folks and find me a reel for $250 bucks instead of the $400+ I will end up paying for this one!

I think I saw that one on UK eBay at £249.99.

If you do want an 8/9 there is another one being advertised with a spare spool at £149.99, which is only just over your $250.00 target.

I couldn't see any salmon models at the moment though.

Regards, Tyke.
