Super example of this rugged fly reel the "FlyCraft" by Milwards of Redditch,
England in its original box. The reel has a gun metal finish, permanent ratchet
and drag system. It is a precision made reel and although showing some wear
to the finish is not damaged. It has a superb circular line guard with no
evidence of wear. The reel is very attractive in appearance, the line guard
can be moved to facilitate left or right hand wind.
