You have to see it and touch it to appreciate the quality and design of the hand-crafted Hardy Duchess!

After a decade, Hardy has introduced the first new classic reel. Offered in 4 sizes, Hardy has spared no expense. The reel is machined from 6061 T6 bar stock aluminum, anodized a beautiful Titanium color and assembled and polished by hand in Alnwick, England.

The inventive design offers dual line guards, a stainless steel spindle with a lubricant filled recessed area. The frame and spool are fully ported and boast a new and improved click check system - sounding like music to a fly fisher!

Other features include nickel silver spool latch bar, LHW/RHW conversion, a dovetailed reel seat which is fortified by screws and a wooden handle treated to prevent swelling. Hardy included important details like fine knurling for better grip on the outer edge of the frame & spool. See why the Duchess reel outshines the rest in its class.

Size Guide

The Hardy Duchess is available in 4 sizes so all your needs are covered from light Trout fishing to the big fish using Spey lines. The compact little 2 ¾” Duchess reel weighs just 3.1oz. It easily takes a WF3 floater with almost 40m of backing which is suitable for light Trout fishing.

The Duchess 3" takes a WF5 line and weighs in at 3.7oz. It’s offered at a modest price too!

The larger Duchess 3 1/4" functions at a higher capacity for bigger Trout rods and will take a WF6 flyline and 60m of backing and is slightly heavier at 3.9oz to balance those longer outfits.

The Duchess 4" Salmon fly reel is the Granddaddy of them all! With a WF11 Spey line and over 250m of backing, it is sufficient to lure the big fish anywhere around the world while its 7.7oz weight offsets most modern rods just enough to make them less tiring to cast all day long!
