Walker, A.L. – T/R-1

  • For your consideration is a scarce A.L. Walker T/R-1 fly reel. This has a 2 1/2" diameter with a 1 5/8" frame width. The Walker catalog says it's for a 3 or 4 line with 25 yards backing. It is a fixed click set up for RHW.

    This consists of a polished aluminum frame and spool, hard rubber side plates, and nickel silver balance and fittings. The reel shows minor scuffs from honest use on the rims and one 3/16" scratch on the hard rubber side on the front. Stamped "Maker A.L. Walker N.Y." on the rear bearing cap. The T/R-1, also known as "The Midge," is rarely seen and highly collectible.
