Hardy Reels ~ Over 100 Years of Excellence

… Not much needs to be said about these iconic reels … They’ve been speaking for themselves for over 10 decades <> And they do speak loudly … !!!

This selection of Hardy click & pawl, and disc drag reels will have spool capacities suitable for our two handed rods ranging from 2 to 12 weight.

The reels designated for T.H. (two handed) 2 to 6 weight line capacities will be well suited for all game fish within a range of 1 to 10 pounds. These would be ideal reels for the lighter duty two handed rods such as our Trout Speys, and ultra lite switch rods.

The reels designated for 7 to 12 weight will be well suited for all game fish within a range of 6 to 35+ pounds. These would be ideal for our medium to heavy duty two handed rods.
