Hardy Bros. Wide Spool Perfect Reels

The first Hardy Heritage range of products are due to be launched as the company return to their roots.

The Hardy Heritage range consisting of rods and reels made in Alnwick, England - products symbolising the values making them one of the oldest and most respected fishing tackle makers in the world.

Items in the Hardy Heritage range include the most famous product ever to have been launched by Hardy; the Perfect reel, a timeless design revamped and relaunched utilising the most modern technology.

Other products in the range include the Gladstone bamboo rods, created by our master bamboo rod builder, Callum Gladstone.

Beautiful classic fly reels, the latest revision in over a century of the Perfect. This new model features a wide spool for better capacity, a time proven check system, and that classic Perfect sound.

Ever since Forster Hardy was first granted a full patent for the Perfect reel design in 1889, our engineers, developers and consultants have been constantly striving for ways to improve on perfection, tweaking and adjusting to bring you what we believe are the best reels in their class to date. After all, if we offered anything less, it would not be a Perfect.
