FS S.E. Bogdan No. 2 Fly Reel

#1
Here is a finely hand-made S.E. Bogdan Fly Reel I have decided to sell, This is a real beauty! Stanley Bogdan of Nashua.
Bogdan reels were never mass-produced and had a wonderful reputation for quality, durability and a drag that was second to none.

These reel have a 2:1 multiplier - meaning it retrieves 2 times for every one turn of the handle. This original Bogdan has the signature double-brake shoe and the signature 10-position lever that is used to regulate drag. There were few of the listed No. 2 models made in general, so this is a rare model!

This Bogdan No. 2 fly reel has only been lightly used, therefore it is in excellent condition. There are few minor surface scratches found overall, but nothing to effect performance. This right-hand retrieve fly reel is structurally and functionally sound. It appears that most anglers would use this Bogdan No. 2 fly reel for salmon - or similar sized species - fishing. This fly reel would be best suited for line weights 9-11.

This sale is a chance to get your hands on a very special fly reel. At one time, there was quite a substantial waiting line for one of these finely built reels. These fly reels are no longer produced and Stanley Bogdan was a person who changed the way the world fished for salmon and trout and was one of the makers of the best reel money could buy. The S.E. Bogdan No. 2 still commands a high price and is sought after by both anglers and collectors alike.
