Default Re: Question about Vintage Hardy Lightweight Reels

Hi Richard,

You kindled a memory here. Years ago I found a vintage & mint (as new) St. George 3 3/4 with the smoky agate guard. I knew what I was getting into but convinced myself that to finally own one would be worth the business of it being a right hand winder........... I never warmed up to it, I loved the look of this classic but when I moved to Alaska I sold it and used the proceeds toward another salmon reel that I could set for left handed operation.

If a fellow likes to reel using their right hand the old reels are perfect, pun intended, but otherwise I believe they will be disappointed when trying to change their style.
