Default Orvis CFO III

I have an Orvis CFO iii, which is in a leather case that I bought in the mid nineties. It is made in England, and I am wondering what the history of it is. MInd you, it is a very nice reel, but I would just like more about its manufacturing and any info on the model....
Thanks

It says Hardy made the reels until 1992. Who makes them after?

Thanks for the reply and the web link. It is a very nice reel. Are the current CFO's made in England also?
