Hardy Lightweight Fly Reel Series











The Hardy Lightweight first appeared in 1935, featuring Hardy's patented quick release spool latch and a solid spool. In 1951 Hardy introduced the Lightweight range, the brainchild of Lawrence Robert Hardy, son of founder William Hardy.

Lightweights are rugged reels, precision engineered and
designed endure the test of time and becoming even better with age, the gunmetal finish developing a rich patina that compliments any sophisticated split-bamboo, glass or fast-action graphite rod.

Lightweight reels feature a slim profile, recessed spool, nickel-silver line guard, dovetailed reel foot, compensating click-check protects the lightest tippets. Easy right to left hand conversion.

Today's Lightweight reels remain one of Hardy's best selling reels, machined from the highest quality barstock aluminum available so you rest assured it will be just as rugged and trouble free a reel as the day you purchased it when the time comes to pass your battle scared Lightweight onto the next generation.

Now Hardy has released the Classic Lightweight Rod range to accompany the Lightweight reel.

Next to your rod and line your reel is the most important part of your fishing outfit. Therefore my advice is: Buy the best reel your means will allow. If you are to be really successful, your whole outfit must be so selected that without conscious effort on your part it will do exactly what you ask of it, and do it in a manner which will surprise and delight you.  - L. R. Hardy  Hardy Catalogue 1960

I received the Hardy Lightweight fly reel without troubles. It's very good and I am very pleased with it.
Thank you . Best Regards, Yukio Tsubono    Japan
