Hardy L.R.H. Lightweight.  Late 1990s vintage, made in Alnwick.

This is an exceptional example of this classic reel from the single screw line guard era.  It is in outstanding, very lightly used and mechanically perfect condition.  It comes with its original black vinyl padded case and paperwork.

As with all reels we supply, it is completely clean and freshly lubricated and has had the reel foot hand-fettled so that your rod’s reel seat won’t be marked.

Suitable for left or right handed use on rods from 7½’ and longer, for lines up to a double taper #5 floater + backing.

The LRH Lightweight is the model that I use for all of my river fishing.  I’ve been using mine since I was nine and it remains in perfect mechanical order.  It is light, robust, ergonomically satisfying and in forty three years together, I have never felt that I needed an exposed spool rim, despite catching some large and lively fish from time to time.

The Lightweight range of reels is no longer produced by Hardy.  They are all time classics and the perfect match aesthetically and functionally for your fine hand-made rods.

Weight: 3⅞ oz
Diameter: 33/16” 

Price: £295
