Hardy St George Hotspur Salmon Fly Reels

Hardy St George Hotspur Salmon Fly Reels at Front Range Anglers

The St George Salmon was first introduced in 1920, then, in 1921, the design was changed to incorporate the ‘silent wind in' action. The St George Salmon remained in production for 5 years and now, 90 years later, Hardy will once again be manufacturing St George Salmon reels, based on the original 1920 design, in it's Alnwick Factory.

Hardy Reel Designer, Charlie Norris said;

"The St George Salmon reels were incredibly advanced for their day. Using a mid arbour spool, these reels were also fitted as standard with such innovative features as a circular revolving line guard, twin handles and compensating check.

"Today we have taken the same features and incorporated them into a fully bar stock version of the reel which is available with a mid arbour #9/10 spool and a standard arbour #11/12 spool."

  •  6061 barstock aluminium construction
  •  Anodised for corrosion protection and scratch resistance
  • Frame is common to both sizes therefore spools are interchangeable
  • Revolving line guide
  • Reel diameter - 4 ¼"
  • Spool width - 1 5/16"

FRA's Review of the Hardy St. George Trout Reel
"The St. George is a reel that most anglers are familiar with.  After all, these reels have been in production since the turn of the last century.   The St. George is preferred it for it's lighter weight to capacity, simple, uncluttered, classic lines.  These reels are the perfect counterpart to the Perfect series of reels.  Featuring much of the same construction and attention to detail as the Perfect, the St.George is a fine choice for trout and steelhead."  ~FRA
