In the summer of 2013, England beat Australia in the hotly contested biannual series of Test match cricket known as The Ashes, making it three straight Ashes wins in a row for the first time since 1981. The 1981 series is popularly known popularly known as 'Botham's Ashes', due to the remarkable performances of Ian Botham with both bat and ball. As cricket fans gear up for a rare ‘back-to-back' Ashes beginning in Australia in December, Hardy Bros are pleased to announce the release of our Limited Edition 2013 Ashes Victory Perfect Reel, produced in association with Sir Ian Botham, himself a keen angler and a huge fan of Hardy fishing tackle. Sir Ian comments:

"I've used Hardy tackle all my life, and The Hardy Perfect reel is an absolute dream to fish with, with that iconic sound - you can hear it up and down the river when a fish screams off! With an emotional connection for so many anglers, the Perfect was the obvious choice for a reel to commemorate the Ashes victory"

Completely designed and manufactured in Alnwick, England, by Hardy master craftsmen this special reel features an amazing hand polished gunmetal anodised finish, ivorine handle, revolving line guard, and of course that iconic Perfect sound. It comes in a presentation box, a deluxe black leather reel case with plush red lining and accompanying booklet.
The finish on these reels is exquisite!
