This classic Bogdan salmon reel has seen years of honest service as seen in the wear to the finish on the black anodized end plates. I would place this reel at about a 5 cosmetically and a 9 mechanically. This left hand wind reel measures 3 3/4" in diameter with a 1 1/8" wide spool. The frame is gold anodized aluminum. The tail plate has Bogdan's eleven position drag system. The rim of the frame is neatly engraved "NO MAN CAN LOSE WHAT HE NEVER HAD." ISAAK WALTON" on the handle side, and "1963" on the tail plate side. It is loaded with a floating fly line with backing. I assume that it is 10 weight since that is the recommended line for this reel. There is a low reserve (for a Bogdan) because of the wear to the finish on the end plates.
