A 2.75in Hardy Perfect is the highlight of Moore Allen Innocent’s sporting sale this Friday. The reel, with 1912 check mechanism, rim-mounted tensioner and a smooth brass foot, is estimated at an ambitious £1100-£1500, thoiugh this is a rare size. It is fitted with a later agate line guide, and the ring has been re-soldered/re-glued quite crudely. There is a fair range of rods and reels in the sale, as well as a Cooper-mounted trout. You can view the catalogue here. The sale takes place at Circencester, Gloucestershire.
