kush Thanks Malcolm,

I will pass this on and yes, I think deep pockets are involved

Willie Gunn Well I hope he has deep pockets, here is a lead,
Reels date back to the mid 19th century and include: a Farlow walnut and brass Perth reel, c 1852; a very rare 1896 pattern Hardy brass and alloy Perfect salmon fly reel; a rare Malloch patent 1920 multiplying alloy sidecasting reel and a rare Hardy Zane-Grey 6" Monel big game multiplying reel.

Says John Mullock "the Zane-Grey is a fascinating reel recorded by Hardyís that Mr Grey stipulated it must be the best big game fish reel in the world. It also has a faceplate with two Royal appointment medallions. Itís expected to attract a sum around £5,000."


There is also a huge variety of angling books, paintings, china and other angling associated artefact generating a 500 lot catalogue which is already generating commission bids from across the globe.

Catalogues are available from Mullock Madeley, tel 01694 771771, or visit the website mullockmadeley.co.uk

Hardy Zane Grey Reel?

Gentlemen,

I realize that a Zane Grey Reel is not exactly a salmon reel, but I figure that this board is a good place to start looking for one.

A good friend of mine is a collector. He and a friend (the primary procurer of classic reels for the British Columbia Sportfishing Museum) are looking for a Zane Grey Big Game reel for the Museum. I told him I'd run it by you guys - so any info or even where to look next would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
