Overview

A complete black and white reproduction of the 1906 Hardy's Anglers Guide Fishing Catalog with a new introduction by Ross Bolton.

This 1906 catalog is special in many ways as it is the bridge between Antique and Vintage Years. Many of the rods that had stopped production in 1909 Breadalbane, XL Roach for Perch, Spey Twitching, and more are in this catalog, as well as the standards that were around for 50 years, the Murdock Spinning / Prawning, Gold Medal, and Hotspur.

The House of Hardy was started in 1872 when William Hardy started a gunsmith shop in Alnwick, England. When joined by brother John James Hardy, the direction of the enterprise took a turn for the better as the brothers' passion for fishing became their business.

By 1880 they produced greenheart and bamboo rods. In 1891 they patented the first Hardy "Perfect" reel.

An amazing selection of the best collectables from a book that is worth over $3,000 at auction.
