Perfect Trout

The first “Perfect” reel was patented by the Hardy brothers in 1891. The Hardy brothers’ tradition of perfection continues today with Hardy Perfect Trout Reels. Manufactured in England this particular reel design is one of the most famous reel designs ever made by the House of Hardy. Today, the House of Hardy is still committed to perfection with these reels.

The Perfect Trout Reel is one of the most recognizable fishing reels in history for a reason. The aluminum reel is truly distinctive with an ivorine handle and gunmetal grey casing with an anodized finish. The reel proves that it is of the highest quality when you feel the smooth winding provided by its fifteen stainless steel ball bearings. Hardy does not stop proving its product there. To further prove the superiority of the Perfect Trout Reel they have protected the extremely light tippets with a high quality click-check.

House of Hardy has even made a variety of models of the Perfect Trout Reel for every angler’s needs. You can buy it in either a left or right handed wind. Each wind is also available in three different sizes so that you can be prepared no matter what the fishing situation. The company proves that they truly care about their customers and products when they provide a sheep skin case with all of the Hardy Perfect Trout Reels that they sell. Overall, this is one of the best fishing reels on the market today not just because of its high quality, but because it has proven its worth for decades.
