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.

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
