Hardy Bougle Reel
The variation was initially requested by Frenchman Louis Bouglé, an extremely knowledgeable fisherman and tournament caster who requested that Hardy produce a reel with a good line capacity which remained light enough to balance rods between 41/2oz and 8oz. From this initial request, the Bouglé reel went from strength to strength and became one of the most famous reels in angling history. This variant of the Bouglé was launched for the reel's 110th birthday in 2013, and we feel is one of the best yet - with its rolling pillar; reversible click check; naval brass bush and spindle; and its hand polished, deep anodised ‘pearl silver' finish.
Made by Hardy Bros. reel makers in Alnwick, England, this Bouglé reel comes presented in a beautiful, UK made, soft leather, sheepskin lined reel case. It is a reel for generations.

Hardy Fly Reel Cascapedia
Several years ago, a friend of mine sold me a new-in-box Cascapedia that he had bought but never used. I won't tell you the price I paid, but the whole thing went down because Hardy was going to be discontinuing the reel model. It was the 6/7 size, and I put on a Joan Wulff Signature Series WF6 line. I guess that last part isn't important but I have a weakness for good kit, and the line is part of it. (I'll stop myself before describing the rods I've used it with.) Anyway, the Cascapedia did go away for a couple of years, but it's back now, and better, more handsome, more advanced than ever. So naturally we had to get in a selection for the shop. It's unlikely this new Hardy-Made-in-England Cascapedia reel will be going away again, but it's also true that they're hard to get ahold of, because they're selling out everywhere. Available in a full 4 size range, for every fresh water scenario from trout to two handed Spey. The two smaller sizes feature a classic click check system, while the larger models feature a fully functioning disc drag with an inbuilt audible clicker to give you that classic Cascapedia sound.
