Dingley – 3"

  • For your consideration is a Dingley 3" fly reel made for "H. Monk, Gun Maker, Chester." This has a 3" diameter with a 1" frame width weighing 4.70 ounces with a 4wt. sink tip line on it. The crazed handle spins freely. This features a smooth brass foot and a caliper and spring. One corner of the foot has a slight sweeping upward bend or twist but still seats on a couple of rods I tried it on. Stamped D3 inside and 3 on the foot. No rim rashes just some wear to the leading. Mechanically tight with no wobble but has a little side play.
