Hardy 1939 Bouglé Heritage Reel



The 1939 Hardy Bouglé Heritage reel pays homage to the original Bouglé that was last in production in 1939. Timeless classic looks with an updated Mark ll check system. We carry the 3 3/4" diameter "Olympic" version of this reel, which we think is the perfect size for trout spey rods and little switch rods. Trout spey rods 2-5wt will all have play with this 1939 Bouglé Heritage Reel.

From Hardy on the 1939 Bouglé Heritage Reels -

The original Bouglé was last produced in 1939, and many collectors believe the reel reached both its functional and aesthetic apex, even though few reels were produced that year. Now, the new 1939 Bouglé Heritage Reel pays homage to those rare originals. The new reels feature the time tested Mark II check mechanism and are finished with a dark gun metal anodization, reminiscent of the original. The 1939 Bouglé Heritage Reel is available in the traditional trout sizes at 3" and 3 1/4" diameters. Additionally, and for the first time, they are offered in a 3 3/4" Olympic diameter, which is perfect for light Spey and Switch rods.

Made by time served Hardy Bros. reel makers here in Alnwick, England, this Bouglé reel comes presented in a beautiful, UK made, soft leather, sheepskin lined reel case.
