JW Young 4 3/8" Spey Reel - Marked Holbrow

The first buyer ran into an issue with the wife, so the reel is available again.

JW Young 4 3/8th inch Salmon reel with fitted block leather case, stamped "Holbrow & Co. Maker 40 Duke St St James S.W.". Very neat pawl design and the reel purrs while winding in line and has a very stout click in when in play. One end of the foot has been slightly bent but it is full length and unfiled and creates no problems. The lid to the block leather case has separated, but this is still a nice thing to have for display with the reel.

This reel in very good condition, with most of the original finish remaining. The reel probably dates to the late 20's or 30's.

RHW - Right Hand Wind
Weight - 12 oz.

As I will not have the opportunity to use this reel (transfered to Kansas), I thought I would offer it here as it find an owner who intends to use it. I'm not looking to get rich, just need to find a good home for the reel.

$215 - Includes insured shipping in the United States. Outside the United states, shipping at cost.

Three day inspection period. Money refunded, less shipping, if not satisfied.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson
