Hardy Bougle Fly Reel

A timeless classic. Over 100 years ago Louis Bougle needed a reel light enough and with enough line capacity for the new lighter rods of the time. So he asked Hardy and we came up with the superb, original Bougle reel. Since that first model was listed in our 1903 catalogue, the basic design has remained the same, though we've tweaked and improved it, so that this new Bougle incorporates all the best features of 106 years of Hardy reel making. With the style and feel of the much loved Bougle Mk IV, this all new MkVII, with its anodised high-grade aluminium spool, stainless steel spindle and nickel-silver line guard is, we think you will agree, the best Bougle by far!

Please note: backing can add 3-5 days to the shipping estimate

Hardy Bougle Fly Reel Reviews

Solid and Classic Review by Cabster
Posted on 10/9/14
I've enjoyed my Bougle for almost fifteen years loaded with WF4F. The classic look complements a wide range of rods from cane to fiberglass to graphite. I've used this on small WNC streams to the Green, Madison and Jefferson and then DuPuys Spring Creek and the Henry's Fork. It's eqully at home on any and with trout large and small. Solid functionality and good looks at a price that's within reach for most.
