Hardy Lightweight Fly Reel Reviews

Perfect match for my bamboo rod. Review by Alan
Posted on 5/22/14
I was looking for a classic reel to pair with my new Sweetgrass bamboo rod this year when I chose the Hardy Lightweight. It's timeless design and flawless craftsmanship make it a perfect match. Nothing fancy here, just proven quality that never disappoints. There's nothing quite like the sound of a screaming Hardy reel when you've landed a big brown.
