Clean Sage Model 106m Fly Fishing Reel With Leader, Line & Backing

Here is a very light Sage 106M, click pawl, fly reel that can apparently be set up for either right or left handed use.  Made in Redditch, England.

Its design is apparently based on a model from the JW Young 1500 series, among the most robust, yet smooth, click-pawl reels ever produced. In addition to Sage, the reel was also branded for LL Bean, Shakespeare, Daiwa, and others.

There is a little edge wear to the grey powder-coated finish, and the original plastic cosmetic hub cover insert was lost.  I replaced it with a Swiss 1/2 franc piece of exact size which I think is nice because it looks like the Swiss miss on the coin is holding a fishing rod.

A relatively inexpensive rivetted reel with a much more expensive feel.  Many users think the low foot is a desirable design feature, creating less stress on the wrist.

The line seems to be in good shape and it looks like the original owner was expecting to hook some runners by the amount of backing on the spool.

The opening bid is a bit higher than my normal starter, but this is much nicer reel than I currently have for my Fenwick and I would like to try it on Yellowstone Cutthroat next year if none of you want it at that price.

$6.00 for US mail; $9.00 for Canada; $12.00 for overseas mail.
