Fishing reels and flies are particularly collectable and can achieve excellent prices at auction. We regularly sell all sorts of sporting items and memorabilia within our monthly collectors sales, including trophies, shirts and football programmes, field sport items, sporting and antique guns, hunting and shooting accessories and clothing. Two early 20th century oak fly reservoirs by C. Farlow & Co, London, each containing approximately three hundred fully dressed salmon flies, recently realised £1,050 apiece, and a Hardy Bros 9" big game fishing reel stamped 'Hardy Bros Ltd No 1536', recently sold for £6,500.
Fishing & Sporting items are sold monthly at our Sussex Saleroom and bi-monthly at our Winchester Saleroom, as part of the Works of Art & Collectables section of our Interiors series of auctions.
