    BOGDAN 300M RHW multiplier spey fly reel purchased in January 2000 via ebay from Lynbrook NY fly reel collector Glen Radovich for my fly reel collection. Undoubtably one of the rarest hand machined spey reels by the late Stan Bogdan, dates from 1962 as its Ser # is 62-102.

    This BOGDAN 300M RHW is as described by Glen:

    "as new, never fished, right hand wind multiplier. Reel has hard to find gold annodized finish w/black handle and fittings. This is even rarer as it was sold only through Abercrombie and Fitch in the "60's and as such is an early example of Stan Bogdan's work. The ultimate reel for your spey rod or looks great in the cabinet! Tastefully engraved initials "A.K.S." on reel and hard leather case (included w/reel)."

    I posted several flyreels for sale a couple weeks ago and I advised that photos were available on flickr under my name: simpleinterest43.
    They were not initially available as I had set the public viewing default incorrectly,
    BUT, my flickr posting under simpleinterest43 is now fixed and 10+ fly reels , including this BOGDAN 300M RHW Classic fly reel are available for viewing in sets.

    This is one of my fly reel collection crown jewels and is priced at $2,900.

    If you have any questions, please respond, PM, or call me at 360 840 6012.

    I still have 140 fly reels to sell from my collection. WFF purchasers to date: yoda, speyfly, draggerman, boboo_3, etslater. I have also sold 26 fly reels on ebay since February 2011 under simpleinterest.

    Wow! I wish I had the funds for that reel. I just bought a 200M.
    The 300M is my dream reel. Good luck with the sale. I'll keep in touch while trying to liquidate some other gear to buy this. Are you interested in any trades?
    Thanks.
    Ed

    Hi Ralfish
    I have several pictures of the 300M Bogdan at my flickr site under my site name simpleinterest43 or search under bogdan or "classic spey reel".
    It is as near mint as a 1962 Stan Bogdan Abercrombie & Fitch Gold & black spey reel can be.
    Also shown are for 2 Otto Zwargs, a 504 E Vom Hofe Modified, 2 Arthur Walkers, and other reels.
    Sold today via wff and speypages today from my flyreel collection, the bogdan 300M, a Hardy Marquis 8-9 multiplier, a St Aidan in mint nearly new, and a Orvis DXR 5-6 w sp spool. I will be loading more reels at flickr in the next weeks.
    Call me at 360 840 6012 if you have a collectible or fine fly reel desire.
    I may have your dream reel.
    Would you believe, Charltons, Jack Charlton Makos, Hardy St George 3 3/4 & 3 3/8 multilpiers, Hardy Ocean Princes, Hardy Gold sovereigns, lots of J W Youngs (speedex, dawai, ll bean), Orvis DXR's, SSS's, Hardy Marquis multipliers in 4, 6, 7, 8-9. Also Hardy Zeniths, Marquis 8-9, 10, and
    Salmon 2 with spare spools.
