A vintage Alex Martin of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen - Thistle fly reel.

This is a very good example of a Walter Dingley made reel with wide drum, rim tension regulator, black abonite handle, brass line guide, smooth brass foot, knurled left handle drum screw with nickel washer

The reel has a fine smooth check clicker and retains good dark lead finish throughout.

The reel is 4" overall diameter with the spool being 3 1/2".

The reel is stamped TP, I believe this to be Thomas Pattinson who made fly reels for Hardy Bros between 1920 & 1930 and subsequently must of worked for Dingley.

A fine alternative to a the Hardy Perfect reel and still very usable today. Walter Dingley made reels for Hardy before opening his own workshop in Alnwick, England and went on to manufacture reels for a host of leading fishing tackle retailers.

Great shop, great service, will drop by when in Scotland

The team at Gamefish were very accommodating in providing a lot of answers to my questions regarding this unique reel. Throughout a number of email exchanges I found this to be the perfect reel for me to combine my Aberdeenshire heritage together with my love of fishing. This will be a family heirloom that I will use to fish until I pass it down. The reel is better than described and while the photos are fantastic, they do not do the reel justice compared to when holding it in your hand. I can't want to land a large fish with it to hear it really sing. Online purchase was easy and straightforward, and the shipping was lightning fast all the way to the USA. I found Gamefish to be very forthright, honest and a pleasure to do business with.
