Bogdan Salmon Reel In Champange Mint Condition


⭕ A mint Stan Bogdan 3 3/4 inch Model 200 Salmon reel in Abercrombie and Fitch colors of the light champagne with black accents. It appears to be a 60s to 70s version, with the name plate on the drag side. This reel is set up for right hand retreive. These reels are actually in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

This reel is not an Abercrombie and Fitch, but a specialty reel ordered in that color configuration. This reel has the 1.91:1 retreive ratio (rounded up to the familiar 2:1), multiplier, and combined with with his peerless cam-driven two-shoe breaking system, is still hailed as the best braking system ever designed.

Bogdan reels had their frames hewn from one piece aluminum alloy and required over 18 hours of handmade manufacture.

These reels have established their reputation with the likes of Lee Wulff, Ted Williams, Thomas Aquinas Daly, who actually did a watercolor of Stan and his rod and reel in Stan Bogdan at Charley Valley Rock (2003), and an oil Still Life with a 150. No other reels have had such tributes, nor has any other reel designer received the well deserved acclaim that Stan Bogdan has received.

Guy Coheleach also did an oil on linen titled Fish On , again featuring Stan with his legendary reel.

No other reel offers such history, craftsmanship, and sheer joy of ownership than a Bogdan.

You are purchasing a piece of history and legend, not just a reel.
