A friend on mine has a Hardy Viscount Disc LA 9/10 that I am trying to figure out how to change from left hand to right hand. I am not familure with this reel and can't see any obvious changes to make. Any ideas?
There is a guy in Vancouver BC who does reel repairs for Hardy and does a business of it on the side as well. He has all the parts I have eve wanted and more, even for my old reels. I am sure someone out here knows his contact info.
I have problems with Highfields Fly Fishing. They repaired my lefthanded Hardy Perfect reel (removed broken screw from shaft) but didn't sent a new screw. As it's lefthanded it's hard to get. I have sent emails to company and tried to call them but responsible people seems never to be present. I'm little desperate because I would like to use that reel with my new bamboo fly rod.
John Mathers no longer is associated with Highfields. The Highfields operations were sold to a new gentlemen...I forget his name. Regardless, Terry the machinest, who worked for John, is now associated with the new Highfields.
Sorry to hear you had a bad experience Jukkak. I've had two Perfect's feet swapped out by Terry and both times excellent work.
I went through my old emails and noticed that senders name changed after January.
Anyway I will get new screw through Hardy and hope that they didn't change screw size in Highfiels. Fishing season will soon start here in Finland and I hope I can use this reel with my new bamboo fly rod.
