A fine J.W. Young for Alex Martin "The Club" pattern 15A trout fly reel with nickel line guard
ref. no. 048
A fine 3 1/8" J W Youngs pattern 15A trout fly reel stamped Alex Martin "The Club"
. Reel is in fine condition with a good nickel line guard (no grooves), the reel is fitted with a fine rim adjusted check. The reel is in good condition retaining a small amount of its original celluloid finish, As you can see from the photos this has worn a fair amount but as many will know the Youngs black finish was never the best. Overall a fine reel.
REEL CONDITION SCORE 8/10
(slightly higher than I would have given to another makers reel but this takes into account the poor celluloid finishes that Youngs put on their reels)
