Antique Foster's of Ashbourne 4" Salmon fly reel


Offered for sale is an antique vintage salmon fly reel made by Foster's of Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Historically. Fosters Bros. was an old established tackle shop at 15vDig St., Ashbourne, Derbyshire beginning in 1883 until the last Fosters family member died in 1965 when the business died. According to Google research..."Foster Brothers operated for sure out of Ashbourne, Derbyshire, from 1883 until 1965.....They frequently ran into trouble with HARDY for sailing too close to the wind in the matter of some of Hardy patents. Still, they were a recognized competitor in the marketplace of their day".

This gorgeous reel is of bi-metal. It has a brass spool and an alloy frame, a smooth full brass foot, four brass pillars, has a permanent click drag and is either LHW or RHW. The reel is 4" in diameter, the spool being 1 1/4" wide and 1" deep and would surely accommodate about 250 yards of 12 pound micron backing under ac full 8-11 weight fly line and leader and would be a suitable candidate for fishing for large salmon with a 3 piece spey rod.
