Produced in England to the same specifications and using the same tooling as the original CFO, these Limited-Edition classic CFO fly reels are magnificent pieces of fly-fishing history sure to be future heirlooms. First offered in the Orvis catalog in 1972, the CFO quickly became an iconic reel in the fly-fishing community, thanks to its unrivaled sound and unique, timeless appearance. Manufactured in England for the next two decades, the Hardy-made CFOs developed a devoted following over the years that continues to this day. As a respectful nod to the past, a limited, individually numbered supply of these spring-and-pawl reels will be made. Each is a replica of the riveted 1972 model with subtle updates such as a gray anodized finish. This classic fly reel comes in a soft leather reel case and commemorative box. Weighs 3.3 oz.
